Marking the twentieth anniversary of that convention (and the tenth anniversary of the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Growth in Johannesburg), this June sees the UN organizing one other Convention on Sustainable Growth and is bringing collectively 1000’s of members from governments, the personal sector, NGOs and different teams, to agree on a variety of measures to scale back poverty, selling respectable jobs, clear vitality and a extra sustainable and honest use of sources.
