The first International Conference on Environment and Development (named 'The Earth Summit') was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on 3rd - 14th June 1992. It was attended by over 100 heads of state who signed the Convention on Climate Change and a further one on Biological Diversity. Five year meetings are held to review the Conventions, especially the goals of Agenda 21 and sustainable development.
