The leaders of Indonesia, the United Kingdom and Liberia will lead the effort in planning the implementation of the United Nations’ Agenda 21, the UN announced Wednesday in an emailed news release.
Leaders from throughout the world gather next month in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to hammer out their differences over the proposed global treaty, which will guide nations on a far-ranging number of policies, including the environment and economic development.
Appointed to the High-level Panel of Eminent Persons to plan its implementation if it is passed this year were President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, and Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom.”
The UN report on the proposal, approved in 1992, can be read online.
There appear to be disagreements among nations that would prevent a treaty being approved today.
