Reports and Status Reviews
Agenda 21, agreed at
the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, called on all countries to introduce national
strategies for sustainable development (nssd). Since then, two international
targets have been set: a Special Session of the UN General Assembly (Rio +5)
set a target date of 2002 for nssds to be introduced; while the OECD Development
Assistance Committee (DAC) has set a target date of 2005 for nssds to be in
the process of implementation.
To assist in meeting
these targets, the OECD/DAC initiated a project to develop policy guidance for
development assistance agencies on the development and implementation of nssds.
This project, 'OECD/DAC Donor-Developing Country Dialogues on National Strategies
for Sustainable Development', involves a review of experience with nssds (and
other strategies for environment and development) in a number of developing
countries, on the basis of consultations with a range of stakeholders. The project
focuses in particular on the kinds of processes and conditions required to make
nssds work in practice.
