This issue of Sustainable Insight provides a preview into the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development that will take place in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012.
More than 50,000 participants from governments, businesses, NGOs and lobby groups are expected to convene in the Brazilian city with the goals of:
• renewing global political commitment to sustainable development
• assessing progress to date (on sustainable development)
• addressing new and emerging challenges.
Discussions will be focused on delivering a green global economy: Rio+20 could mark a sea change in awareness of resource efficiency and green economic growth.
