WILPF International Executive Committee Meeting 2001 recalls the Ministerial Declaration from UNCED 1992: ”Peace, Development and Environmental protection are interdependent and indivisible|.

WILPF recommends

That the issues of military production and consumption, military spending of resources, raw materials and money, which affect sustainable development, and nuclear energy which threatens sustainable development be raised before and at the Rio+10 conference, 2-11 September 2002 in Johannesburg, South Africa. These issues could be raised in the context of Sustainable Production and Consumption, Energy Production and Consumption, Climate and Health problems, and Financing of Development.
