Description
"Sustainable Development - A Workable Action Plan?"

The World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg was the largest-ever global conference on a question of fundamental importance: how can humanity’s present-day needs be met without jeopardizing those of future generation? Is the plan of action developed at the Johannesburg conference a step toward the goal of sustainable development or, as some critics charge, was the conference simply too big a gathering to be effective? In this edition of World Chronicle, Nitin Desai, the Secretary-General of the Johannesburg conference and UN Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs, discusses what was achieved, and what progress still needs to be made, on the path to sustainable development.
