April 24, 2012 – Last week the Earth Watch Summit was launched by The Natural Resources Defense Council, Peace Child/ Road to Rio+20 and Stakeholder Forum. This initiative plans to gather and track the Rio+20 preparations of every country. Already it has populated details for 45 member states outlining which Heads of States are committed to attending the conference and providing some details of individual preparations including if the country has a Rio+20 preparatory committee; if they have undertaken a sustainable development review; if they will be announcing new initiatives and what their vision for success is at Rio+20. We will be watching this site with interest in the run up to the Rio Summit. For further details visit – www.summitwatch.org.
