The UN Conference on Sustainable Development (commonly called Rio+20 or Earth Summit) will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from June 20-22, 2012. The Conference provides an opportunity to reflect on science’s contribution to sustainable development since the first Earth Summit 20 years ago, and on how it can contribute most effectively in the future.
Scidev.net has created a web page that gathers the latest news and features, opinion and analysis, as well as policy briefs and key documents. These articles can be a good starting point for research if you are planning on reporting on science and sustainable development as it relates to Rio+20.
