strategy

Using interdisciplinary teams with local expertise for sustainable development studies

Implementation:
This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities. Agenda 21 recommends conducting scientific studies of national and regional pathways to sustainable development, using comparable and complementary methodology. Agenda 21 indicates that such studies, coordinated by an international science effort, should to a large extent involve local expertise and be conducted by multidisciplinary teams from regional networks and/or research centres, as appropriate, and according to national capacities and the available resources.
