About this book

The 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) in Johannesburg brought together thousands of delegates who mapped out the future of the global sustainable development agenda. The resulting dense 54-page technical document, the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation, identifies priorities in the implementation of Agenda 21 and other international agreements, as well as commitments which will take these priorities forward.

'The guide will be widely used in the Commonwealth and beyond to promote understanding and engagement in the WSSD process at all levels' From the Foreword by DON MCKINNON, Commonwealth Secretary General.
