15 June 2012, Rio de Janeiro - The Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development is an historic event marking the 20th anniversary of the 1992 Earth Summit which led to three vital UN conventions; the Convention on Biological Diversity (UNCBD), the Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), and the Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

With over 50,000 participants expected to attend, the conference venues have been bustling with activity, especially around exhibits and side events. Here are some scenes from Rio+20.
