About the Freedom 21 Agenda
At the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, the United Nations put forward acomprehensive plan for its version of sustainable development called “Agen-da 21.” Speci
c goals for implementing Agenda 21 were set forth at the U.N.World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa inAugust, 2002, and according to its authors, Agenda 21 is designed to be a road-map for the world in the twenty-
rst century.In response to this ambitious, yet fundamentally
awed, approach to tacklingthe important issues of environment and development, a group of like-mindedorganizations has set forth the “Freedom 21 Agenda for Prosperity” to promotea more robust concept of sustainable development based on the principles of freedom, sound science, and genuine free markets.What follows is the second edition of the Freedom 21 Agenda. It is a boldprogram that has received extensive review from many scientists and expertsaround the world.
