This video is part of the UNRISD project "Social Dimensions of Green Economy and Sustainable Development" - http://www.unrisd.org/greeneconomy
In green economy and sustainable development debates, some groups have more power to determine goals, policies and outcomes than others. For sustainable development and poverty reduction to be attainable, broad-based participation is required to shift power relations and empower citizens to hold governments and businesses to account for their decisions and actions.
This is the fourth video in the series "Bringing the Social to Rio+20".
Footage is based on recordings and interviews from the UNRISD conference "Green Economy and Sustainable Development: Bringing back the Social Dimension" (2011).
