Example text

The roles of these different agencies are clarified in the UNGASS report which states: ‘the role of UNEP, as the principal United Nations body in the field of environment, should be enhanced…. UNEP is to be the leading global environmental authority that sets the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations’. And ‘UNDP should continue to strengthen its contribution to and programmes in sustainable development and the implementation of Agenda 21 at all levels particularly in the area of promoting capacity-building, in co-operation with other organisations, as well as in the field of poverty eradication’.

Agenda Ya Wananchi blames unfair trading systems for current trade and debt problems. The various actions recommended in the two documents reflect these different interpretations, with Agenda 21 looking towards the liberalization of trade and compatible national government policies on environment and development. The two agendas agree that developing countries need more resources, but Agenda Ya Wananchi goes on to state that this is mainly because of international trade policies which produce ‘a net transfer of financial resources from the poor to the rich’.

The greatest controversy regarding trade and debt revolves around whether the current development model, with a few changes, is adequate for achieving goals such as fair trade or reduced disparities, or whether a completely new approach is required. The agendas which address trade and debt are divided on this issue. Agenda 21, the Youth Action Guide and Changing Course favour modifications to the existing system, while the NGO Alternative 22 ECONOMIC CONSIDERATIONS Treaties, Agenda Ya Wananchi, the Women’s Action Agenda 21 and Youth ’92 are very critical of current approaches to development.
