The first Earth Summit in Brazil addressed international concerns about the state of the world’s environment. But 20 years later, those issues have evolved and the world is gathering again in Rio this week.
The outcomes of Rio+20 will have major potential impacts on small-holder farmers, and that’s why USC Canada is attending: to help carry their voices and to present examples – from our SoS program – of what their work can accomplish.
We'll be live-tweeting throughout the conference. We’ll also provide reports on our website from the summit over the next week. And you can check out our growing list of resources to get a handle on the basics and learn more about the issues being discussed at Rio+20
