A Civil Society Review of 20 Years of Sustainable Development” initiated by six Chinese NGOs, which includes CANGO, Institute of Environment and Development, Shanshui Conservation Center, Greenovation Hub, Friends of Nature and Institute of Public & Environmental Affairs.

The speakers were from the organizations Friends of Nature, Shanshui Conservation Center, CANGO, Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN) and Promotion Association for Mountain-River-Lake Regional Sustainable Development of Jiangxi Province.

The presentations were followed by a Q&A session.
Finally, Mr. Huang Haoming made a closing summary in which he expressed that Rio+20 is an important event for Chinese NGOs being involved in the international process. As we all know, from 1992 to 2012, Chinese NGOs made a rapid progress and they began to get involved in different international stages. There was no Chinese NGO representative in the 1992 Rio summit.In 2002 there were 12 Chinese NGO representatives participating in the summit in Johannesburg.This time there are more than 30 Chinese NGOs with their representatives in 2012 and an impressive series of activities were organized during Rio+20.
