The Johannesburg Declaration is a result of the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD)—sometimes named Earth Summit 2002—in Johannesburg, South Africa. The Johannesburg Declaration is built on the earlier declarations from the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, Stockholm (1972) and the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro (Rio Declaration 1992). It includes the progress made in committing nations to sustainable development, but with a special focus on eradicating poverty and proposing new mechanisms for international cooperation and multilateralism.
