From the Preface: In preparation for the Rio+5 Forum, Maurice Strong, Chair of the Earth Council, asked national sustainable development councils to assess their respective countries’ progress on sustainable development since the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). The President’s Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD) welcomes the Earth Council’s leadership and efforts to integrate the experiences of all sectors and countries in pursuing sustainability. Due to time and resource constraints, it was not feasible for us to conduct a full assessment, but we felt that we could make a positive contribution to the Forum by presenting the PCSD’s reports–Sustainable America: A New Consensus for Prosperity, Opportunity, and a Healthy Environment and Building on Consensus: A Progress Report on Sustainable America–along with a sampling of sustainability initiatives across the United States.
We organized this document to give a Asnapshot@ of just a few of the many sustainability efforts that are underway around the country. Since the PCSD’s formation in 1993, we have discovered a wealth of activity in every region of the country and seen tremendous amounts of energy, thought, and resources being devoted to sustainable development by all sectors of society.
