A 22-member panel, established by the Secretary-General in August 2010 to formulate a new blueprint for sustainable development and low-carbon prosperity delivered its final report on 30 January.
The Report, entitled Resilient People, Resilient Planet: A Future Worth Choosing, contains 56 recommendations to put sustainable development into practice and to make it a part of mainstream economic policy as quickly as possible.
The report calls for integrating social and environmental costs in how the world prices and measures economic activities.
