Post-Rio to Post-2015 Background Paper: Institutional Framework for Sustainable Development
United Nations Environment Programme (2012-10)
The post-Rio+20 period marks an opportunity to rethink and redefining the way in which all stakeholders engage, participate and shape decisions at all levels of government processes. The Institutional Framework for Sustainable Development (ISFD) and good governance came out of Rio strengthened. Whereas section IV of the Rio+20 Outcome Document is the primary IFSD section with paragraphs 75 to 103 detailing governance issues, there are many references to governance elements interspersed throughout the Document.
