The Rio+ Centre will facilitate research, knowledge exchange and promote international debate about sustainable development. It will bring together a broad international consortium of partners, consisting of government agencies, United Nations agencies, local governments (including the state government and municipality of Rio de Janeiro), NGOs, universities, think-tanks and the private sector.

“For us it’s really important to have a legacy here after Rio+20, in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Governments, private sector, and civil society actors will be able to use this Centre to learn from each other’s experiences, identify people and partners with critical expertise, plan ahead, and design programmes and policies...Rio+20. It will create a unique space for discussion of innovative ideas and actions for building a sustainable world.”

According to the official announcement of Brazil’s Ministry of External Relations, the Rio+ Centre “is born with the mission to be a main reference centre for the promotion of one of the defining debates of this century: the integration between the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development.”

The objective behind the creation of the Rio+ Centre is to build on new and innovative mechanisms for engaging the participation of local governments, civil society, business and academia in knowledge exchange and discussions around the subject.

From the outset, the Rio+ Centre will provide continuity to the discussions launched by the Rio Dialogues for Sustainable Development (http://www.riodialogues.com)...On the ground in 177 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations. http://www.undp.org.
