"Promoting Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development" is the title of one chapter of "Agenda 21" which was agreed at the Earth Summit in June. The United Kingdom's response to "Agenda 21" will be covered in a report to the Sustainable Development Commission which will be submitted by the end of 1993. The Department will be contributing to this report as appropriate.
