CONCLUSION:

It must be remembered that this was only the first year that it actually reviewed the implementation of Agenda 21 and it is only two years since Rio. It is well known that government and other bureaucracies are slow to change and that it may take more time before actual progress is made. The CSD must learn to crawl before it can walk and walk before it can run. At the moment, the CSD is just learning how to roll over. Perhaps next year the CSD can take its first step.
