The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD, or RIO + 20 ), will be held from June 20 – 22 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This event marks the 40th anniversary of the first Rio Conference – more commonly known as the Earth Summit. The expectations for RIO + 20 are in many ways linked to the unfulfilled commitments and 2 promises of the 1992 Earth Summit.  The paradigm shift from unsustainable economic growth models to sustainable development was a commitment at the highest political level in 1992.
