Water security is now one of the top natural resource challenges facing humanity. Many regions of the world already experience severe water scarcity. Some estimates suggest that one third of humanity already lives in water stressed areas. This is projected to rise to as much as two thirds by 2030, by which time the demand for fresh water is expected to increase by 30% as the world population grows. Water availability is already a major constraint to increasing food production over the same period.CalendarSponsorsDownload Calendar (PDF)

On the occasion of the Rio + 20 conference, Entico worked with the Rio Conventions to launch a website and RioPlus TV channel to highlight the role and potential of the private sector - the business and investment community - in contributing to sustainable development through the work related to biodiversity, land management and climate change. The three Rio Conventions - the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) - are operational outcomes of the 1992 Earth Summit and serve the global community in setting policy and encouraging action on biodiversity, land management and climate change.
www.rioplus.org presented case studies, best practice and innovative projects that showcase how investment, products and services related to biodiversity, land management and climate change help deliver sustainable development. Our TV coverage at the Rio Conventions Pavilion ensured that the key messages from all presentations were heard not only inside the venue but around the world - in the two weeks of the conference over 50,000 people viewed interviewsWebsiteMagazineSponsors
The key issues and priorities for the COP17 meeting in Durban were achieving a balance between the Bali Roadmap and operationalising the Cancun Agreements, as well as striking a balance between and within the Convention and the Kyoto Protocol negotiating tracks. In an effort to narrow and overcome the divide between developed and developing countries on the expected outcomes of Durban, South Africa has been promoting the sharing of views and ideas around climate change in the build-up to the negotiations.WebsiteMagazineTestimonials
Synergy for sustainable development
Two decades have gone by since the international consensus emerged to pursue sustainable development, including its social, economic and environmental components. The Rio Declaration, Agenda 21 and the three Conventions on biodiversity conservation and sustainable use, climate change and combating desertification, embody this consensus and the mechanisms to achieve that vision.
Where do we stand twenty years on? Is there evidence of a paradigm shift towards inter and intra-generational equities and a balance in the environmental, social and economic dimensions of biodiversity, climate and land? There has been significant progress.Calendar
Weather | Climate | Water - Investing in weather, climate and water. Information: an investment in well-being and prosperity for all
Climate variability and change is with us. Getting climate information to the people is our best option to cope with its challenges and seize its opportunities.

Rapid urbanisation is causing major challenges for health, development and the environment, with mass migration to the hubs, particularly in the developing world, and increasing pressure on the developed world to cut their emissions and clean up their act.
While governments continue to dither round the table, cites are taking up the gauntlet. It's all about Green Growth at the moment, and how that translates into action. There are solutions on the table across sectors, using new technology, new techniques, customs from a bygone age and heightened public awareness. 2011 is set up to be a pivotal year as, all over the globe, cities respond to the needs of their citizens.Calendar
Forests for People, Forests for the Earth
The forests of the world are vast. 30% of the world's land area is forest cover. The forests of the world are varied. Forests are not only the vast expanses of tropical forests in Brazil and the Congo, but also include the massive boreal ecosystems of Canada and Russia and the mangrove forests around the world. The forests of the world support communities around the globe. Forests are home to 300 million people, but over five times this number - 1.6 billion people - rely on forests for their livelihoods. Raw timber products around the globe are worth around 250 billion dollars. The added economic value amounts to double that much.Calendar

Every species, whether animal or plant, uses water every day. This includes each and every one of us. Water connects all people and all life.
Most of the water we use, some 70% globally, we use to grow food. Water also keeps business and industry sectors productive and profitable. The idea we need water to keep us healthy and clean is familiar. However, we easily forget that it is also fundamental to keeping us nourished, to the economy, to jobs, to wealth and security. We need water flowing in rivers for energy, for trade and for enjoyment. Yet, of all the water on Earth, only 1% is liquid freshwater that we can use. Without doubt, water is precious.Calendar
Sustaining Life, Sustaining Our Future
The lives and well-being of over 6 billion people on Earth are intimately linked to the health of the species and ecosystems on our planet, and to its stability. We rely on nature to provide us with food, fuel and medicine. We rely on nature for invaluable services like crop pollination, climate stabilization, and air and water purification. Preserving the integrity of nature - and therefore a high quality of life for people everywhere - requires that we live sustainably and place only those demands upon the planet that do not exceed its capacity to regenerate.Calendar
The beautiful drawings in this calendar, excerpted from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) publication Skies and Oceans, serve as a window into how our future leaders view their climate system. The pictures illustrate both the joys and anguishes of our climate, particularly as climate risks increase the world over.
Increased weather extremes - such as droughts, floods and storms - scarcer food and water resources, and increased disease occurrence are only a few examples of the growing climateinduced risks worldwide. Communities, especially the most vulnerable, must adapt now for their security and growth.Calendar

The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and the Convention for Bio Diversity (CBD) - otherwise known as the "Rio Conventions" presented a prestigious A3 sized 2005 calendar to world leaders, heads of governments, environment ministers and negotiators, inter-governmental agencies, non government organisations and key individuals engaged in environmental challenges all over the world.
A minimum of ten thousand printed copies were made available, of highest quality, full colour using fourteen photographic images portraying the synergy that exists between the work of the three Rio Conventions. To cater to a much wider audience, the Rio Conventions hosted an electronic downloadable version of the calendar and a gallery of photographs on all three websites, making it a personal diary for anyone with a vested interest in sustainable development.
The United Nations Rio Conventions invited sponsorship from appropriate organisations wishing to play a high-profile role within each of the convention processes.
To commemorate the tenth anniversary of the adoption of the convention, the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) invited entries to its international photograph competition where candidates from schools, colleges and universities from all over the World were invited to submit digital images that best illustrated the problem of desertification and/or the measures taken to combat it, both from an artistic and conceptual point of view as part of an awareness raising campaign of the importance of issues at stake in the framework of the UNCCD.More Information
This CD-Rom incorporated all the latest information on desertification from the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). It was part of the welcome pack for participants at the Sixth Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 6) in August 2003, Havana, Cuba. It presented the facts about desertification and the Convention itself. Additionally desertification was contextualised within the wider spectrum of sustainable development and the actions of the CD sponsors (a range of intergovernmental organisations, non governmental organisations and companies).
