The 22-member Panel, established by the Secretary-General in August 2010 to formulate a new blueprint for sustainable development and low-carbon prosperity, was co-chaired by Finnish President Tarja Halonen and South African President Jacob Zuma.   The Panel’s final report, "Resilient People, Resilient Planet: A Future Worth Choosing", contains 56 recommendations to put sustainable development into practice and to mainstream it into economic policy as quickly as possible.”

Read the press release and the full report.

For first media coverage, read The Guardian and BBC News .

My first evaluation after a quick read of the document: good diagnosis of global unsustainability trends but a cowardly lack of hard and urgently needed policies. Another wasted opportunity.
