Chapter 1. Why Sustainable Local Development for UNDP?
United Nations (1987). “Report on the World Commission on Environment and Development: Our Common Future/The Brundtland Report”
“The Brundtland Report” is considered as the first major UN publication on future threats, sustainable development and the role of the international community. It examines “common challenges”, putting emphasis on environmental issues but also connecting it with other issues including population growth, food security, biodiversity, energy, urbanization, more efficient industry, etc. The report launched the concept of sustainable development, making proposals for institutional and legal change and a call for action to define the way forward. The report and its findings led to the first Earth Summit at Rio de Janeiro in 1992 and to the formulation of Agenda 21.Available online at: http://conspect.nl/pdf/Our_Common_Future-Brundtland_Report_1987.pdf 
United Nations (June 2012). “The Future we want”
 This outcome document of the Rio+20 conference acknowledges the main thematic areas and cross-sectoral issues, namely poverty eradication, food security, energy, sustainable transport, sustainable cities, health and the promotion of full and productive employment, and decent work for all. Further, the report describes the sustainable development goals (SDGs) process and the requirements to make them a reality. Available online at:
 
UNDP (2010). “What will it take to achieve the Millennium Development Goals? An International Assessment”United Nations (1992). “Agenda 21. The United Nations Programme of Action from Rio”
Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action, adopted by more than 178 governments at the UNCED con-ference in 1992, to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations system, governments, and major groups in every area in which humankind has an impact on the environment.  The agenda covers social and economic dimensions, conservation and resource management, focuses on strengthening the role of major groups and outlines means of implementation. The agenda discusses combating poverty, changing consumption patterns, health and environmental protection, biodiversity but also how to strengthen major groups, such as farmers, communities, workers and indigenous people, and makes recommendations on how to implement actions for sustainable development. The implemen-tation of these principles at local level is called Local Agenda 21 (LA 21).Available online at: http://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/content/documents/Agenda21.pdf
