Over the course of one week, world leaders convened in Los Cabos, Mexico, for the G20 Summit and in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. The outcomes of these two high-level meetings have potentially important implications for poor people in the developing world in three key areas: food security and agriculture, energy, and green growth. Please join U.S. representatives to the Los Cabos G20 and Rio+20 summits, and other distinguished speakers for an assessment of these summits and the road ahead.
