Brice Lalonde Executive Co-ordinator, Rio+20

 

Last summer was not the best moment to convene a conference. Some countries were in election year and most of the world was still crippled by severe economic crisis. But Rio+20 turned out to be a success nevertheless. Beside agreement on an official 52-page document, The Future we Want, hundreds of side events were organized, often opening paths governments are still shy of taking. Commitments from business, individual states and cities approached 500 billion dollars and, for the first time in a UN conference, inputs from Internet participants were directly conveyed to heads of state and government.
