Mr. Barton will discuss the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) or Earth Summit, held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. The Accord was adopted by 178 governments. Its short title, Agenda 21, is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally, and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Non-Governmental Organizations in every area in which humans impact the environment. The Commission on Sustainable Development was set up to monitor and ensure effective implementation of the agreement. They meet every five years to measure progress.
Through International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, or ICLEI and the President's Council on Sustainable Development, this global program for complete control has been growing and gaining strength for nearly 20 years. Presently the cities of Chandler, Flagstaff, Goodyear, Peoria, Phoenix, Tempe and Tucson are ICLEI members committed to the United Nations program known as Agenda 21.
