A wide range of issues on such priorities of the international agenda as the development of new global political commitments in sustainable development has been submitted for consideration of the conference participants.
Another important point of the negotiations will be the development of the "green" economy principles: ecological modernization of production and development of alternative energy, distributive economic growth, control over consumption and institutionalization of "green" economy, as well as reform of public administration in the interests of global sustainable development.
