Estonian MFA at Rio+20: saving environment requires new way of thinking
"It is essential that we don't live beyond our means, particularly when it comes to using natural resources," said Paet.
"With its activities today, the world is not yet on the path to sustainable development - by the year 2030 the world will need 50% more food, 45% more energy, and 30% more water," he added.
"Energy, industry, agriculture, and transport must utilize more environmentally friendly technologies," he added.
Paet stated that Estonia, as a country that uses e-services, can attest to the fact that innovative solutions help to boost development.
In Rio de Janeiro, Paet also met with the director-general of UNESCO, the prime minister of Saint Kitts and Nevis, and the prime minister of Panama.
