Today, Norvergence will remind you about the famous “World Summit on Sustainable Development, Johannesburg-2002”.

The summit included a vast number of delegates from different countries, environmental organizations, citizen groups, and justice associations. Norvergence also made a list of the areas that were addressed and discussed at that summit:

  • Globalization
  • Cleaner Energy
  • Water quality
  • Oceans and Fisheries
  • Tourism
  • Technology

The main aim of the summit was to make a global commitment to promote sustainable development. Countries should ensure that the development which comes at the price of natural resources should not exceed a predefined limit.

Norvergence Summarized the Outcomes of the Summit

Many governments agreed to adopt energy sources that are not harmful to nature. On the other hand, Oil producing and exporting countries (OPEC) and the United States opposed the “green sources” due to their personal issues.

Overall, even after 17 years of the summit, we are still not 100 percent committed towards sustainable development. Norvergence hopes that every individual understands his/her responsibility and take suitable actions wherever possible.
