Joahannesburg Summit 2002
Preparatory Process

In order to set an agenda that allowed governments and other major players to join forces effectively in Johannesburg so as to confront the real challenges of sustainable development, countries agreed that preparations would begin at the national, sub-regional and regional levels, moving towards the global stage.

The issues considered in Johannesburg were therefore identified and agreed at each level through a participatory process involving governments and other stakeholders, who are known as the Major Groups.
