A meeting with Achim Steiner
Fourty years on, UNEP plays a significant role in sponsoring negotiations on major environmental treates.
In April 2012, UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner visited the centre to discuss issues related to the upcoming Rio+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development, the role of UNEP and how the world must move forward.
Steiner argued that there is a need to "shorten the distance between science and policy". He also called for embedding the "green economy" into the sustainable-development dialogue, and urged not to give up hope yet on Rio+20.
The visit was organised in collaboration with Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI).
Short responses from panel members:
Governance: Åsa Persson (SEI)
Green economy: Thomas Hahn (Stockholm Resilience Centre)
Energy and climate in Africa: Francis Johnson (SEI)
