UN releases Rio+20 zero draft document

The United Nations has finally released the document which everyone in the Rio+20 queue has been waiting for -- the so-called "zero draft" document which lays out the field of verbal battle that will take place over the next five months up to the UN Conference on Sustainable Development this June 20-22. The zero draft represents the result of the UN's presumed sifting through hundreds of "inputs" from governments, UN agencies, business groups, civil society organizations, and others promoting various issues, proposals, and recommendations on how to save the world from the growing global environmental, economic and social crises. These can be found as multiple elements of the "compilation document" which represents 677 individual contributions, all posted and categorized by topical themes on the UN website.
