59. We will promote low-carbon development strategies in order to optimize the potential for green growth and ensure sustainable development in our countries and beyond. We commit to encouraging effective policies that overcome barriers to efficiency, or otherwise spur innovation and deployment of clean and efficient energy technologies. We welcome the UN Secretary General’s “Sustainable Energy for All” initiative. We support the development and deployment of clean energy and energy efficiency (C3E) technologies. We welcome the assessment of the countries’ current situation regarding the deployment of these technologies as well as the on-going exercise of sharing best practices, as a basis for better policy making.

60. We are committed to the success of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in 2012. “Rio + 20” will be an opportunity to mobilize the political will needed to reinsert sustainable development at the heart of the international agenda, as a long term solution to growth, job creation, poverty reduction and environment protection. A green and inclusive growth will create a broad spectrum of opportunities in new industries and in areas such as environmental services, renewable energy and new ways to provide basic services to the poor.
