Rio de Janeiro - The Heads of State and Government participating in the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio +20), last Friday acknowledged the need to
pay greater attention to African countries and the fulfilment of understandings reached at the forum.
The Heads of State and Government, including the Republic of Angola, represented by the Vice President, Fernando Dias dos Santos, approved the final document entitled “The future we want”, at the UN Summit on Sustainable Development, admitting that Africa is still below the fulfilment of commitments.
In the document that was adopted with 105 points, the states recognise the constraints to achieve sustainable development in all its dimensions in landlocked developing countries.
In this context, they reaffirm the commitment to meeting the special development needs and challenges faced by these countries through the full implementation of the Almaty Action Programme.
The leaders encouraged each country to consider the implementation of context truth economic policies in order to obtain a fair and inclusive growth with job creation, especially for women, youths and poor people.
It was agreed that the document begins to be implemented in 2015.
