This conference invites States, civil society and citizens to “lay the foundations of a world of prosperity, peace and sustainability,” with three topics on the agenda:

  • Strengthening the political commitments to sustainable development;
  • Reviewing the progress and difficulties associated with their implementation;
  • Responses to the new emerging challenges of societies.

Two questions, closely related, are placed at the heart of the summit: 1. a green economy in the perspective of sustainability and poverty eradication, and 2. the creation of an institutional framework for sustainable development.
