RIO DE JANEIRO, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The United Nations Rio+20 Conference offered the setting to the strengthening of alliances between some of the most prestigious NGOs in the world.

This was the case of the Cooperation Agreement formalized by Forum das Americas, Brazil's pioneering think-tank on global affairs and hemispheric dialogue, and The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.

The Agreement, which provides a framework for the development of multissectorial joint initiatives, was signed by Forum das Americas Founder and President Mario Garnero and The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation CEO, H.E. Bernard Fautrier, with  the support of the Italian Minister of the Environment, H.E. Corrado Clini.

The Cooperation Agreement was signed in the presence of  H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, who declared:" I decided to set up a Foundation whose purpose is to protect the environment and to encourage sustainable development by definition, this is a common global challenge that requires urgent and concrete action in response to three major environmental issues: climate change, biodiversity and water. It is therefore with great pleasure that our Foundation forges this partnership with Forum das Americas, so ably led by Mario Garnero."

The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation CEO, H.E. Bernard Fautrier, believes "the partnership with Forum das Americas provides an excellent vehicle for us to play a constructive role in the global debate on sustainable development, as well as in projects in Brazil."

Mario Garnero, whose sustainable development leadership ranges from biofuels to green technologies and environment-friendly textiles, indicates that "our cooperation with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is more that a matter of great honour for Forum das Americas. It is an effective instrument to improving awareness and best practices in sustainability". Garnero adds that "we will start work from day-zero in implementing a cooperation program that will be of great benefit to the peoples of Brazil and Monaco."
