Agenda 21

UNCED (1992): Agenda 21. United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), United Nations General Assembly, New York.

The aim of Agenda 21 is to address not only the global problems of the present, but to prepare the  world for the challenges of the next century. It reflects a global consensus and political commitment on development and environment co-operation. The programme areas that constitute Agenda 21 are described in terms of the basis for action, objectives, activities and means of implementation.

For ease of reference the document is divided into four-parts: part I includes the social and economic dimensions; part II covers the conservation and management of resources for development; notes on strengthening the role of major groups are contained in part III; and finally part IV includes a section entitled “Means of implementation”.
