Assessing costs and financing to change consumption patterns

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.

Implementation of this programme within Agenda 21 is unlikely to require significant new financial resources. A research programme and an international process, once established, would require support, probably about US$ 1 million.
