Four panel sessions addressed: the launch of the pilot partnership on national implementation of synergies among the Rio Conventions; the launch of Mozambique’s Green Economy Roadmap; why the three Rio Conventions are critical to achieving poverty eradication; and how the UN system can better integrate environment within the development framework. The celebration concluded with a high-level reception in honor of the 20th Anniversary of the Conventions.
