The Plan of Implementation adopted at the WSSD in 2002 stated that the implementation of Agenda 21 and the outcomes of the Summit should be effectively pursued at the regional and subregional levels, through the UN Regional Commissions and other institutions and bodies.
The CSD, at its eleventh session, invited the United Nations Regional Commissions to consider organizing regional implementation meetings, in collaboration with the secretariat of the CSD, in order to contribute to the work of the CSD and to advance implementation of Agenda 21, the Programme for the Further Implementation of Agenda 21 and the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation.
