Rio+20 – link-side

Det betagende landskab omkring Rio, set fra Niteroi

I disse fodbold-tider kan det være svært at finde information om det forestående topmøde Rio+20 i Rio de Janeiro i de danske medier.

Derfor har jeg løbende samlet links til artikler og kommentarer fra rundt omkring i verden og vil frem til topmødets kulmination i dagene 20.-22. juni løbende opdatere listen.

Konferencens slutdokument viste sig at blive færdigforhandlet allerede inden statslederne nåede til Rio, så links til kommentarer til slutdokumentet The Future We Want er samlet under blog-indlægget Rio+20 – reaktioner og konklusioner.
