Statement on behalf of NGOs, Children and Youth, Indigenous peoples, Women, Farmers, Science and Regional representatives on Sustainable Consumption and Production and Green Economy

Major Groups (2014-03)

We recognise that humanity is confronted with increasing resource constraints fuelled by unsustainable production and consumption patterns. We are aware that the ecological and social problems inherent in the perpetual growth model of development compromise our present and future well-being. This is painfully illustrated by the multiple and interlinked social, environmental and economic crises. We need a sustainable model of development and lifestyles.
