WWF Living Amazon Initiative presents the publication Rio 92, what did it lead to? Rio+ 20, what will it lead to? about the 20 years between the two conferences: United Nations Conference on Environment and Development – the Rio 92 –or ECO 92 and the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development – the Rio+20.

Published in Portuguese, English and Spanish, the aim of this publication is to make a contribution by putting forward ideas and proposals in the form of statements and lessons learned by those interviewed and underscore the issues and solutions for the future of the Amazon, Brazil and Latin America.

All those interviewed, whether from the market sector, the third sector, the political field, the academic world or from civil society at large, in Brazil or in other countries, were involved in some way with the Rio 92; all of them address sustainable development in their present day lives and/or are preparing to take an active part in the Rio+20.

This mosaic of testimony composes a critical vision of what the world has been doing over the last 20 years and what prospects may be delineated by the Rio+20. The sharply critical points of view in no way detract from the importance of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, quite the contrary, they serve to highlight the importance of this historical moment; no less valuable than the one in 1992.
