IN THE PAST FEW DECADES, states, civil society, and the corporate world have been obliged to review and rethink the whole range of development issues.

IBON Policy Brief, September 2013
IBON International has released a policy brief that offers an alternative development framework--development justice. Development justice incorporates five foundational shifts (redistributive justice, economic justice, social justice, environmental justice and accountability to peoples) as pillars for genuine sustainable progress.
In 1992, the Earth Summit convened in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to address the world's social, economic and environmental crises by bringing sustainable development into the heart of policy-making at global, national and regional levels. Twenty years later, the Rio+20 summit seeks to address the same crises, which have now increased in scale and magnitude.
There is now growing awareness that the global ecological crisis is fast getting worse, and that human economic activity is mainly responsible for it. This awareness is leading to ever-increasing recognition of the need—and urgency—for deep-going and systemic changes in society.
