    From the first 1972 UN Stockholm meeting on the environment to the UNCED report Our Common Future (1986), which introduced Sustainable Development (SD) to the UN Earth Summit (Rio 1992), which set the global policy framework, to the 2012 Rio+20 Summit, Sustainable Development has been understood and misunderstood, used and misused across environmental and economic spheres. This paper discusses the evolving SD paradigm, its protagonists, antagonists, successes and failures, especially local and regional applications in relation to the policies and practices of UN Organizations, the European Union and national governments, with an emphasis on the Northern Adriatic arm of the Mediterranean Sea.
