Agenda 21 de China
After the UN Conference on Environment and Development held in 1992, the Chinese Government began the process of formulating China's Agenda 21. The Chinese Government decided to establish a Leading Group and an affiliated office, under the direction of the State Planning Commission (SPC) and the State Science and Technology Commission (SSTC), to engage in the formulation of China's Agenda 21 and the associated Priority Programme.
In March of 1994, China's Agenda 21 was finally completed, based on China's specific national conditions and paying attention to population, environment, and development, sets up a strategic goal of sustainable development that can promote coordinated development of economy, society, resources, and environment.
China's Agenda 21 can be categorized into four parts:
Comprehensive strategy and policy of sustainable development
Sustainable social development
Sustainable economic development
Rational utilisation of resources and environmental protection
Implementation of China's Agenda 21 can be divided into four main sections:
Consideration of economic structure adjustment and transformation of the economic development model;
Gradual integration into national economy and social development plans;
Strengthening of capacity building for sustainable development by enhancing people's understanding in this regard; and
Promotion of international cooperation through various channels by formulation and implementation of the Priority Programme for China's Agenda 21.
