strategy

Integrating sciences relevant to the environment at all political and geographic levels

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 integrating all relevant sciences at the national, regional and global levels so to have the means of carrying out national and regional audits and a five-year global audit on an integrated basis. These standardized audits should help refine the pattern and character of development, examining in particular the capacities of global and regional life-supporting systems to meet the needs of human and non-human life forms and identifying areas and resources vulnerable to further degradation.
