Brussels Conference on Rio+20 October 1 and 2

As it becomes clearer that a new Summit will focus on the Green Economy International Sustainable Development Governance and Environment and Human Insecurity issues Brussels holds the first conference to explore the agenda.

Full conference details can be downloadable from www.earthsummit2012.org organised by the European Economic and Social Committee and Stakeholder Forum the event an impressive list of speakers.

The event being held proir to the UN General Assembly debate on Rio+20 offers a great chance for governemnts to listen to views before the debate.

One of the key elephants in the room is what role will the Summit have for climate change. After all the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change is a daughter of Rio. Until everyone recovers from Copenhagen and looks at the landscape it will be difficult to say. My hunch though is that it will play a significant role.
