Brazil Uses Internet to Monitor Environment Projects Across the Nation

Brazil’s Ministry of Environment has just launched the Agenda 21 System, a technological tool that will permit the government to use the Internet to monitor Brazilian agendas for the environment.

The ministry defines the Agenda 21 as a plan of actions and recommendations on how countries, states, municipalities, and civil society should act to preserve the environment.

The agenda also represents a new global development standard for the 21st century, placing priority on sustainable economic models that don’t harm the environment.

"In effect, it means adopting and implementing an agenda aimed at the protection of biodiversity and water resources and a sustainable approach when it comes to economic processes," commented the Minister of Environment, Marina Silva.

The intention of the government is to accompany local efforts to formulate Agendas 21 in Brazil and to support the Brazilian Network of local Agendas 21.

The project is being set up in partnership with the Brazilian Forum of NGOs [non-governmental organizations] and Social Movements for Sustainable Development and the Environment (FBOMs).
