Visit of Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC, to Brazil

Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, travelled to Brasilia and Rio De Janeiro, for the preparations towards the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD or "Rio+20"), which will take place in June 2012 in Rio de Janeiro. Rio +20 is a unique opportunity for the world, and the EU, to commit further to sustainable development, environmental protection, and improved global governance. It could mark the start of global transition to a green economy.
In Rio De Janeiro, Janez Potočnik met with several representatives of the Brazilian government and participated in a debate on the green economy. He also visited the biosphere reserve of Cerrado, located in the area of Brasilia, belonging to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE).
