Discussion: Equality & Environmental Sustainability in the Post-2015 Agenda: Extended to 12 May

Environmental Sustainabilty & Equality

It has been repeatedly stated that inequalities can hamper the achievement of environmental sustainability. Participants in the global thematic consultation on environmental sustainablity see inequalities in environmental sustainability as an issue of different levels of access to: eco-services for livelihoods and health (water, clean air, clean and renewable energy); between rich and poor countries, rich and poor within countries; rural and urban populations; women and men, current and future generations. Involvement by these groups in decision-making processes has also been repeatedly underlined. Still, why does inequality undermine the attainment of environmental sustainability? Why should equality be at the center of our attention? Post-2015 goals are expected to be ambitious and universal. What does this mean in the context of inequality?
