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

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.
