Must Try Harder

1st June 2002

Scotland’s progress report on sustainability 1992-2002 – “must try harder”.

Political leaders will meet in Johannesburg in August 2002 for the World Summit on Sustainable Development “to take a critical look back at the Earth Summit, and aim to arrive at a comprehensive, frank and useful review of the past ten years.” It is the most important environment gathering since Rio. Scotland is one of the world’s over-consuming nations, using more of the world’s resources than is sustainable (see below).

Environmental groups in Scotland have undertaken a review of Scotland’s progress towards sustainable development. A progress report is published opposite, and conclusions in each of the four areas covered by the Rio agreements are given on the inside pages. On the back page is a ten point urgent action plan for the Scottish Executive.
