Just out my new book written with Jorge Laguna Celis and Liz Thompson. 'From Rio+20 to the New Development Agenda' it gives a real insight into how the Rio+20 agenda was developed and negotiated. A must for anyone already involved in international negotiations or an interest in it. As former BBC correspondent Richard Black says: " This is the ultimate 'insiders guide' to the Rio+20 process, taking the reader from the preliminary discussions back in 2007 all the way through the conference itself and into the future. Un tabloid terminology, Felix Dodds, Jorge Laguna Celis and Liz Thompson give us 'the thrills, the spills, the personalities and power -plays' that shaped the summit and its diverse outcomes."
