Major Groups sectorsAgenda 21 defined nine sectors of society, roughly representing critical collectives of economic, social and technical stakeholders in sustainable development, that have since been known as the “major groups”. It is through these major groups sectors that non-state actors engage with the intergovernmental process. However, working across the nine sectors to develop inter-disciplinary policy recommendations has been found to greatly strengthen the contributions of major groups to the sustainable development process. Major groups shared online workspaces facilitate these efforts.
