UN World Summit on Sustainable Development, Johannesburg

Johannesburg Summit 2002, the World Summit on Sustainable Development, will bring together world governments, concerned citizens, United Nations agencies, multilateral financial institutions and other major actors to assess global change since the historic Earth Summit, the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), of 1992.

At the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio, the international community adopted Agenda 21, an unprecedented global plan of action for sustainable development. The Johannesburg Summit will not open Agenda 21 for revision, but it will seek consensus on the general assessment of current conditions, and on priorities for further action in new areas or issues. Ten years later, today's leaders will discuss and adopt concrete steps and identify quantifiable targets for a better implementation of Agenda 21.

The Summit will take place in Johannesburg, South Africa from
26 August to 4 September 2002.
