INTERNATIONAL LEGAL INSTRUMENTS AND MECHANISMS

EXPERT GROUP MEETING ON INTERNATIONAL LAW AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Twenty-eight international law experts participated in this meeting, which was sponsored by DPCSD and was held from 26-28 September 1995 in Geneva. The participants identified a set of basic principles, considered possible classifications and assessed their potential practical implications in a legal text. The expert group focused on the Rio Declaration, Agenda 21 and other legal instruments that have been negotiated or have entered into force since 1992.
