Improving cooperation on Agenda 21 follow-up among UN and financial organizations at global, regional and levels

The success of the follow-up to UNCED depends on an effective link between substantive action and financial support, and this requires close and effective cooperation between United Nations bodies and the multilateral financial organizations. Agenda 21 indicates that the UN Secretary-General and heads of United Nations programmes, organizations and the multi-lateral financial organizations have a special responsibility in forging such cooperation, not only through full participation in the United Nations high-level coordination mechanism (Administrative Committee on Coordination) but also at regional and national levels.
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.
