Earth Summit +5: Special Session of the General Assembly to Review and Appraise the Implementation of Agenda 21

The first Earth Summit, held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1992, concentrated on "address[ing] urgent problems of environmental protection and socio-economic development," and produced Agenda 21, a "plan for achieving sustainable development in the 21st century." A Special Session of the UN General Assembly met in New York from June 23-27, 1997 to assess the implementation of Agenda 21; the Earth Summit +5 site records that session. Highlights include selected country profiles that document progress in the implementation of Agenda 21 goals (provided by those countries), and geographically arranged Agenda 21 success stories. This site also contains pointers to all the documents related to the session, including intergovernmental organizations (IGO) reports and UN reports on Agenda 21 implementation.
