UN Documents on Earth Summit 2002

The Commission on Sustainable Development discussed the question of the 10 year review of Rio, 2002, at its 8th Session in May 2000.
The CSD decided to recommend conducting a 10 year review of progress made since Rio as well as forward-looking discussions on urgent and emerging issues.
The event shall be held outside New York, preferably in a developing country, and at highest political level.
Thus, it seems likely that there will be a major UN Summit in 2002.

Mr. Zvetolyub Basmajiev (Bulgaria), on the basis of informal consultations: Preparations for the ten-year review of progress achieved in the implementation of the outcome of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development)
