Environmental Protection Agency Administrator
Carol Browner said that much has been accomplished since Rio and we
must remember that we are all in this together for the long term.
She said that achieving sustainable development requires changes in
the way that governments, NGOs and the private sector relate to one
another. She spoke of the new US CSD, which will assist in the
development of new strategies to address these issues. She assured
the developing world that the US was listening, particularly on
capacity building and resource mobilization. The US is reorienting
development assistance programmes toward sustainable development.
