More than 50,000 international experts and leaders from government, NGOs, business, and other sectors are flocking to the United Nations’ Rio+20 Conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Taking place 20 years after the first Earth Summit, Rio+20 aims to address two major, globally important themes: building a green economy and establishing a framework for sustainable development that will decrease poverty, boost social equity, and protect the environment.

Rio+20’s informal sessions kicked off last week and will continue right up until the official conference on June 20th-22nd. WRI’s experts in business, climate, energy, forests, governance, transportation, and more are on the ground for all the action. (Check out a full list of official WRI events at Rio+20).
