In reply to comment: The United Nations (see in situ)

Yes, the Rio20+ irony is more than GALLING.

Such as this, for one... The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is a specialized agency of the UN. Its annual meeting was in February. "Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will share his perspective on the importance of agriculture and how sustainable productivity improvements can reduce poverty in developing countries."

The event is noted on the Rio 20 website: "UN boosts partnership with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help small farmers."

Funny, but I didn't see any mention of this: Bill Gates Foundation Buys 500,000 shares of Monsanto.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
