Establishing regional training centres on sustainable development laws

Context:
Legal-institutional capacities of countries need to be improved to cope with national problems of governance and effective law-making and law-applying in the field of environment and sustainable development.
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 suggests that regional centres of excellence could be designated and supported to build up specialized databases and training facilities for linguistic/cultural groups of legal systems.
