AGENDA 21 is the monumental centerpiece agreement adopted by all participating nations at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. More than three years in preparation, AGENDA 21 is a comprehensive global plan of action to confront and overcome the most pressing environmental, health, and social problems facing our planet.
This dynamic document offers detailed, aggressive, and far-reaching solutions to these major problems - specific and concrete solutions which are intended to be implemented by businesses, financial institutions, schools, governments, private organizations, and individuals on a worldwide basis by the 21st Century.
The adoption of this historical document by virtually every nation on Earth has created an unprecedented global partnership to reverse the environmental degradation of our planet and provide humanity with a future which is environmentally sound and economically sustainable for generations to come.
Comprehensive in its scope, AGENDA 21 is the result of a massive global effort between the largest number of governments, private organizations, and individuals ever to work together on a single peacetime project.
The original but very lengthy and complex U.N. document has been edited and clarified for use by all audiences. Technical jargon has been eliminated wherever possible while all important details remain intact.
