Linking Sustainable And Human Development Within a Human Rights Framework
Interview with Diana Skelton, deputy director general
Often progress in human development, such as that realised through the Millennium Development Goals, leaves behind those most affected by extreme poverty. The most vulnerable people are especially victims of environmental degradation. ATD Fourth World particularly hopes that sustainable and human development are brought together within a human rights framework at Rio + 20, paying special attention to the intelligence and creativity of people in extreme poverty who face this degradation on a daily basis.
