According to statistic, the Rio conferences set out primarily to address the recommendations on sustainable development that had been ebvolved in our common future, for example, the Brundtland Report of 1987, but concluded with much fuzzier agreements on policy than many environmentalists had hoped.  At the same time the continuing negotiations on Climate Change and Biodiversity, with firmer scientific analysis and clearer objectives, were able to converge at Rio in well-defined and binding Conventions, as we have seen throught th emedia.  Nevertheless, progress on this larger issue has not been neglible, and the processes started  then are still going on,with consequences that will take decades to emerge. What is going on?  Could any participant  enlighten me on this.  Or better still, How have the international politics of sustainable development evolved since Rio?
