Rio+20 Three Demands Campaign

In preparation for Rio+20, civil society groups around the world have presented a list of demands to their governments, next steps to encourage improved national environmental governance. Led by The Access Initiative, each participating country has submitted a list of “Three Demands” or “3Ds” to their national governments. Governments can respond to each and commit to ensure that the next wave of reforms to promote Environmental Democracy is more meaningful than the last.

As part of the 3Ds Campaign, civil society organizations in each participating country—from environmental organizations to democracy groups, from women’s organizations to religious organizations—have collaboratively written a list of achievable demands for their national government. They have submitted these demands officially and will continue working with their respective national governments in order to make these and similar commitments public by the summit.

So far, organizations in 24 countries have submitted demands to their governments: Bangladesh, Benin, Bolivia, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Madagascar, Mexico, Nepal, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda, United States, and Vietnam

Note that the map will be updated to reflect the most recent submissions and country addition to the 3D Campaign.
