ANNEX 1 󰀭 UNITED NATIONS BODIES AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS WORKING ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT 
1. The United Nations and Sustainable Local Development
Since 1972, the United Nations (UN) General Assembly has adopted multiple resolutions on sustainable development (SD), creating a distinct policy framework and specialized bodies responsible for promoting sustainable development worldwide. In 2011, Sustainable Energy for All was added to this body of resolu-tions (full database can be found here: https://rio20.un.org/resolutions-more).  The formulation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2001 combined all sectors and even mentions environmental sustainability explicitly as one of its goals. While the MDGs primarily target na-tional governments, international organizations, civil society and the private sector, the importance of and chance to include local governments into the realization process was acknowledged.  The following figure illustrates the most important milestones in the development of UN principles and strategies for sustainable development starting in 1972 to the most recent events at the Rio +20 conference in 2012.
