The Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development is rapidly approaching -- an important opportunity to make progress on the global sustainability agenda. A panel of Reid Detchon, United Nations Foundation, David Sandalow, Under Secretary of Energy, and Robert Engelman, Worldwatch, discussed the developing agenda.

The “Managing Our Planet” seminar series – developed jointly by George Mason University and the Wilson Center’s Environmental Change and Security Program and Brazil Institute – addresses planetary scale problems and solutions.
