About UNDP World Centre for Sustainable Development Rio + and Instituto Mar Urbano

The RIO+ Centre is a legacy of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) and was set up to keep the commitment to sustainable development alive, both in action and ideas. The Centre was established in June 2013 in Rio de Janeiro as a partnership between the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Government of Brazil. As one of the key outcomes of Rio+20, the RIO+ Centre is guided by the Conference’s Future We Want Outcome Document, which reaffirms the inextricable link between social, economic and environmental development. In addition, the recently adopted 2030 Agenda with its action plan of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that are underscored by principles of dignity and justice for all provides the overall framework under which the RIO+ Centre develops its work.

The mission of Instituto Mar Urbano is to create audiovisual products on marine biodiversity and the relation of Man with the Sea, with the aim of Inspiring, raising awareness, educating and mobilizing society.
