Issue 6: The health agenda for Johannesburg

01.01.2002

The Rio conference in 1992 heralded a new approach to dealing with environment and development issues and represented a significant advance in thinking since the Stockholm conference on the human environment held 20 years earlier. Looking back over the past 15 years, and reflecting on the work of the World Commission on Environment and Development, the Rio conference in 1992, and the subsequent work of the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD), I see evidence of much progress, as well as many setbacks.
