“I was once asked what I thought was the most pressing problem facing the world today. To select the worst of the worst is hard, but the Rio+20 Conference’s priority areas of energy supply, decent jobs, sustainable cities, sustainable food supplies, access to water, quality of the oceans and disaster readiness make a comprehensive list to start with. For me, climate change and poverty are also high on the shortlist; and all of these issues are interlinked so we can’t solve one whilst ignoring the others.”
