UN: fisheries subsidies at Rio +20

Fisheries subsidies negotiations might seem "dead" or, if you are more optimistic, in deep coma at the WTO (I will come back on this) but they seem to be "alive" in the framework of the UN's Rio +20 conference.

In a BBC website I found the following text:

"Japan and the US have tried to delete language on ending agricultural and fisheries subsidies. Canada wants fossil fuel subsidies to end only when they are inefficient and cause "wasteful" consumption." 

Here is the link to the BBC's Science and Environment news page with the text.
