The United Nations General Assembly decided in December 2009 to hold the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD) in 2012 - also referred to as 'Rio+20', although it could be Stockholm+40.
The Conference will aim at securing renewed political commitment to sustainable development, assessing the progress and implementation gaps in meeting already agreed commitments, and addressing new and emerging challenges.
The Brazilian government and the UN have just announced (4 November) a probable change of dates for the conference to 20-22 June 2011, with the 3rd PrepCom on 13-15 June. This will be confirmed at the end of November.
