Looking Back on the 1992 Rio Earth Summit

Given the grindingly slow progress of international climate mitigation negotiations at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) annual conference of parties meetings, many observers have become sceptical about the effectiveness of large multinational conferences like Rio+20 as vehicles for progressive action on major environmental issues.  It is therefore worth looking back on the achievements of the Rio Earth Summit in 1992 to remind ourselves of what can be achieved when parties from around the world unite to address global environmental problems and highlight the obstacles and limitations of international multilateral processes in pursuing environmental objectives.
