Interview with Dr. Joakim Harlin, UNDP. Focus: Water at Rio+20

June 2012


The Rio+20 Conference is one of the most important events on the United Nations agenda. The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that "In the next twenty years, the world will need at least 50 % more food, 45 % more energy, 30 % more water and many millions of new jobs. Our challenge at Rio+20 and beyond is to take a holistic, integrated approach to these linked challenges --driving at the interrelations such that solutions to one problem translate into progress on all."
