There is concern that post Rio+20 "Green" Economy activities might be used and misused to green-wash existing unsustainable economic practices that lead to inequities and infringe on the rights of effected peoples and future generations. Should Rio+20 not fundamentally aim to transform the current economic paradigm?
This is a space to discuss the potential impacts on women of the proposed expansion of the "green" economy. What does a genuinely sustainable economy look like? How can Rio+20 support the role of women in initiatives and projects that contribute to sustainable food systems and livelihoods? Are "green" technologies part of the solution?
