RIO DECLARATION
   ON ENVIRONMENT
 AND DEVELOPMENT


The United Nations Conference
on Environment and Development
(Rio de Janeiro, 3-14 June 1992)


“In order to achieve sustainable development,
environmental protection shall constitute
an integral part of the development process
and cannot be considered in isolation from it.”

(Principle 4)
If we don’t share a language, a common unit of measure, how can we avoid that environmental protection is considered separately from the development process? We must start to valuate the environment. We must think development from an ecological perspective.
