Recommendations of the Regional Consultation Meeting of the Major Groups and Stakeholders of Latin America and the Caribbean to the 27th Session of the UNEP Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environment Forum

United Nations Environment Programme (19/11/2012)

Latin America and the Caribbean encompasses a wide range of countries, cultures and languages which pose unique challenges and opportunities. It is becoming one of the most urbanized regions in the world with one of the highest levels of inequality. While there is growing capacity to engage in the current international participatory processes including the development agenda beyond 2015, the outcomes of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) and the Sustainable Development Goals, there remain socioeconomic disparities that limit the voice and access of citizens, particularly indigenous peoples, vulnerable women and urban and rural poor.
