Presidents Council on Sustainable Development: U.S. must Lead at Home and Abroad to Implement Agenda 21

The Council examined how international private capital flows affect sustainable development, particularly investments in developing countries. The Council concluded that:

The United States must use its leadership role to help chart a path towards sustainable development both at home and abroad
Champions from all sectors are required for change to occur
Multilateral agreements should recognize and address economic, environmental, and equity considerations together
Foreign investment, assistance, and all government activities should promote recipient countries’ efforts to achieve sustainable development
The Council, or another body, should continue as a forum for the thoughtful consideration of sustainable development issues by high-level leaders in all sectors.
