“Rio+20: Will the Option be the Usual Crisis, or a Far Greater One?”


Written less than a year before the 2012 Rio+20 conference, this article published by PAN Asia Pacific (PANAP) provides an in depth analysis on how the 1992 Earth Summit (formally the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development or UNCSD) failed to deliver its commitment to “save the planet.” Amid the unprecedented environmental and economic crises the world is currently facing, the article asks wether Rio+20 will only fail again in addressing the real issues of sustainable development, or will it make the situation even worse?
