GENERAL DEBATE

Under-Secretary-General for Policy Coordination and Sustainable Development Nitin Desai opened Friday morning's debate with a summary of UNCED follow-up activities. With regard to the CSD, Desai commented on the success of its first session, the participation of ministers in the high level segment, and the establishment of two working groups on finance and technology transfer that will meet early in 1994. The CSD expects member States to: keep it informed on activities; adequately consider non-State actors regarding policy implementation; honor commitments made in Rio; and ensure Agenda 21 follow-up in all intergovernmental bodies.
