Felix Dodds: Rio+20 to a New Development Agenda

Author and global sustainable development leader Felix Dodds has been working with sustainable development for more than two decades observing and participating in international development meetings, including the 2012 Rio+20 Conference and the original Rio Earth Summit in 1992, the Conference on Human Settlements in 1996, the Johannesburg Summit in 2000, and the Millennium Development Goal meetings in 2005. His most recent book, From Rio+20 to a New Development Agenda: Building a Bridge to a Sustainable Future, written with Elizabeth Thompson and Jorge Laguna-Celis, provides an insider look at the 2012 conference and how it came about during one of the worst economic crises to date. The book is a companion to Only One Earth: The Long Road via Rio+20 to Sustainable Development, authored with Michael Strauss and Maurice Strong, which tells the story of sustainable development at the global level over the last forty years.
Dodds recently shared his thoughts on the book’s key themes and in particular its final chapter, looking forward to the creation of the new Sustainable Development Goals which will replace the Millennium Development Goals in 2015. For interview go to Forbes
