A Programme for the Implementation of Agenda 21 in Pakistan (P-10)

The most important outcome of the UNCED process is Agenda 21 which was signed by Pakistan in June, 1992. This document forms the basis upon which new conventions and future agreements will be made as well as a key input into national sustainable development plans. Pakistan, of course, already has the National Conservation Strategy (NCS); Agenda 21 can be used as a reference for adopting means of implementing the strategy.

This document provides a summary overview of A21. A21 is divided into the following four sections:
I.    Social and Economic Dimensions
II.    Conservation and Management of Resources for Development
III.    Strengthening the Role of Major Groups
IV.    Means of Implementation

Each section is further divided into chapters which state objectives to be fulfilled and a set of recommendations on the best way to implement the Agenda. A Table of Contents is places in Annex I. The document takes into account the special needs and particular circumstances of developing countries and has taken steps to insure that they are able to receive aid, financial and otherwise, from developed countries. A great deal of the chapters are interrelated as many of the areas overlap.
