What's Happening at Rio+20: June 21st

It’s the final week of Rio+20, and WRI’s experts are on the ground for all the action. Each day, I’ll bring you highlights of what’s on the horizon. Check out the details below on the exciting things happening tomorrow. And be sure to visit the full list of WRI’s Rio+20 events.

Today, the heads of state arrived and the formal conference opened. RioCentro, the main conference area, has gotten very crowded with delegates, representatives, media, and others. Ironically, some of the drama has gone out of the area since the outcome document text is more or less finalized.
