The Global Environmental Governance Project at the Center for Governance and Sustainability at UMass Boston has launched a new Rio+20 Responses section as part of its main website.

This new section features the main outcome document of the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development – Rio+20 – and responses to the negotiations and the outcome. The purpose is to provide an analytical space to present and discuss the Rio+20 process, the implementation of the conference outcome, and the implications for the system of global environmental governance. The compilation is a resource for the academic, policy and research community bringing together different opinions and positions on the analysis of this key event for the evolution of global environmental governance.

If you would like to suggest an addition to the responses outlined in this section, please write to with a link to the article and a brief summary.
