The World Summit on Sustainable Development brought together an estimated 45,000 participants in Johannesburg, South Africa. The United Nations objectives for the Summit were to review the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development and reinvigorate global commitment to sustainable development. The United Nations Adoption of the Millennium Development Goals (2000), which included commitments to human rights, economic development, and environmental sustainability, provided an important milestone and a series of concrete targets as reference points. The World Trade Organization Doha, Qatar meeting of World Trade Ministers (2001) had launched a new round of trade and economic liberalization negotiations, the “Development Agenda”, and many countries were still seeking to understand the potential impacts and opportunities of these plans for greater economic interdependence. Finally, the International Conference on Financing for Development in Monterrey (2002) had led to concrete commitments for new and additional developed country resources, earmarked for development spending.
