Local Sustainability 2012 - ICLEI publishes a global study on local sustainability processes

Dear All,

with 21 days left until Rio+20, we are pleased to share with you *Local Sustainability 2012* study, consisting of two complementary reports:
* Taking Stock and Moving Forward. Global Review,
* Showcasing Progress. Case Studies.

The study documents the *variety of local processes for sustainability that have emerged globally since the 1992 Earth Summit*. Local initiatives, many of them inspired by Local Agenda 21, have made a lasting mark not only on local but also on national and international governance systems, changing profoundly the way we think about sustainable development and pushing the boundaries of what is achievable.

 Taking into account current discussions on the international governance framework for sustainable development, one of the key themes of the Rio+20 Conference, the main focus is on placing local sustainability initiatives within a broader national and international context, in order to *identify opportunities and barriers to scaling up local action*.

 Looking into the future, the study proposes a list of recommendations to leaders at the national, international and local level. The recommendations underpin ICLEI's advocacy activities as Local Authority Major Group co-organising partner in the run up to the Rio+20 Conference and will further inform ICLEI's work globally.

 The study has been produced by ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, in association with the Charles Leopold Mayer Foundation and UN-Habitat.

 To read more and *download* the reports (including summary and press release) visit http://local2012.iclei.org/local-sustainability-study/

 We are looking forward to discussing the contents and recommendations duringICLEI World Congress <http://worldcongress2012.iclei.org/>, the Rio+20 Global Town Hall <http://local2012.iclei.org/rio-20-global-town-hall/> and other Rio-related events.

 With best regards,
 Ania Rok
