COMMISSION ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT (CSD):
In May 1994,
the CSD will conduct a review of progress achieved since UNCED in
the area of human settlements (Chapter 7 of Agenda 21). UNCHS,
which was designated as Task Manager for human settlements by the
Inter-Agency Committee on Sustainable Development (IACSD) in
September 1993, has prepared a programme-by-programme descriptive
analysis of the implementation of the human settlements chapter.
The report attempts to analyze general trends in each of the
programme areas of the chapter so as to make possible an accurate
assessment of progress so far achieved, and to form the basis of a
set of recommendations which can facilitate a speedy and successful
implementation of the human settlements programme areas of Agenda
21. Review of States activities will also take place in the context
of the national reports that are required for the review of the
implementation of Agenda 21 at the national levels.
