EARTH SUMMIT REPORT

The final, edited version of the Report of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (Earth Summit), which was held in Rio de Janeiro in June 1992, is now being made available by the United Nations Secretariat in New York, in the form of Document A/CONF.151/26, in five volumes.

The UNCED Secretariat will upload these final versions into the enounced documents conferences, as the various volumes become available in machine readable formats.

First the three "substantive" outputs of the Earth Summit (Annexes I-III of Section I: Resolutions Adopted by the Conference, of the formal report A/CONF.151/26) will be made available:

1. Rio Declaration

2. Agenda 21 (with 40 responses holding the 40 chapters)

Afterwards, the formal report will be uploaded broken up into a number of topics and responses, to be announced later.
