CLG host “Deal, No Deal” Conference
The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change (CLG) recently hosted a Conference looking at a post Copenhagen deal called “Deal, No Deal” at St. James Palace.
Felix Dodds gave a speech, in which he discussed and promoted Rio+20.
“Whilst we must not let up on the climate change agenda, I do believe that real progress will only be achieved when the cogs and gears of the various international discourses on sustainable development become properly aligned and meshed together. It is, for example, critically important that the issues of food security, water scarcity, poverty reduction, economic growth and environmental degradation are treated as a joined up challenge alongside climate-change, rather than as choices that we must pick and choose between and prioritize one above the other. This was the vision of sustainable development as it was articulated at the Rio Summit back in 1992 and this must again be a rallying cry as we look forward to the Summit’s 20th anniversary in 2012.”
