Executive Summary

Philippine Agenda 21 is part of the country's response to fulfill its commitments in the historic Earth Summit in 1992 where government and key sectors of society agreed to implement an action agenda for sustainable development, known as the Agenda 2 1.

Philippine Agenda 21 seeks to answer four questions:

Where are we now?

What is sustainable development?

Where do we want to go?

How do we get there?

In answering these questions, the major stakeholders involved in the formulation of the Philippine Agenda 21 found it necessary to seek common ground. The Principles of Unity, forming part of this document, embodies this common ground which unites the key actors in their pursuit of sustainable development.
