As the world population reaches the 7 billion mark, a new UNEP report uses the best and most comprehensive statistical data available to date to illustrate how the planet has changed in two decades, since the 1992 Rio Earth Summit.

The report, entitled "Keeping Track of our Changing Environment: From Rio to Rio+20", tracks economic, environmental, social, geopolitical and technological trends through numerically-based graphs and illustrative "before and after" satellite images.

The report is produced as part UNEP's "Global Environmental Outlook-5" (GEO -5) series, the UN's most authoritative assessment of the state of the global environment. The full GEO-5 report will be launched next May in the run up to the UN Conference on sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
