Summary What was agreed, and disagreed, at the Earth Summit and why? Which international business and government organizations are now making the decisions which will affect our planet into the 21st century? What strategies should non-governmental organizations (NGOs) be adopting for environment and development? For the non-specialist and expert alike, Michael McCoy and Patrick McCully explore the above questions in The Road from Rio. The Road from Rio describes the possibilities and limitations of UN conferences, outlines the Rio Declaration and explains what is missing and what is useful in Agenda 21. Focusing on the role which NGOs will, by necessity, continue to play, The Road from Rio looks at the key political issues for social movements and environment and development NGOs in relation to industrial associations and international government agencies. In The Road from Rio McCoy and McCully provide NGOs with important ideas for future action
