The Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, held in June 2012, launched a process to develop Sustainable Development Goals, which in convergency with the review of the Millennium Development Goals, will help define the post-2015 development agenda. This agenda will address interconnected global issues such as water, energy and food, as well as critical social needs including poverty eradication, gender equity, health and education.
