"As we take up the Presidency of the European Union and the Chair of the G8, we will continue to build up our partnership with those outside government. We must create a consensus on the need for sustainable development. I am sure that this review of the Special Session will help develop that consensus."
From the Foreword by Tony Blair
"The authors of this book played key roles in the process leading up to and concluding with the Special Session, and have had the opportunity to reflect on the most important lessons to be learnt from the exercise. They are thus well placed to propose a number of interesting ideas on how to ensure successful preparations for the ten-year review that will take place in the year 2002. It is my pleasure to recommend this book to all those who are interested in the issues of sustainable development and multilateral diplomacy."
From the Foreword by Nitin Desai
In June 1997, heads of government and senior representatives from over 130 countries met in New York to consider what progress had been made since the first Earth Summit in 1992, and la decide upon priorities for the future. Earth Summit II presents the principal official documents agreed al the Summit alongside an authoritative analysis of where progress is and is not being made, the reasons for this, and the priorities of the parties involved. Finally, the authors look forward to the ten-year follow-up in 2002, and propose methods for ensuring that that event is both effective and participatory. Insightful and comprehensive, this will be essential reading for policy makers, lobbyists and students on environment and development courses.
