My name is Carmen Capriles and I come from Bolivia.
I would like to thank the Facilitators as well as UNDESA and UNNGLS for the support and the opportunity to be here.
I would like to point out that de core definition of sustainable development is focus on “the needs of the future generations” in that sense we must recognize that in the last decades our current social and economic systems have cross many environmental thresholds, my generation is already facing climate change impacts, we have to understand that if we don’t have a save environment today, we cannot guarantee a save environment tomorrow. Therefore even if we do have the best document that includes all the stakeholders but is based on people and not the planet we cannot guarantee prosperity or even people.
