    Abstract The United Nations University (UNU) responded quickly to Agenda 21’s action call by developing a 10-year programme on environmentally sustainable development. UNU decided that its programme would have three focal areas, reflecting the University’s existing environmental research strengths. The first involves restructuring society towards sustainable development. The second is studying sustainable ways of managing natural resources. And the third is conducting activities on environmental governance and law. Since its implementation in 1993, UNU’s response to Agenda 21 has helped promote environmentally sound development through research, capacity-building activities and dissemination programmes. UNU’s autonomous platform within the UN system and its ability to work in close cooperation with governments, universities and the private sector has helped it find innovative solutions to some of Agenda 21’s pressing problems. This report shows how UNU has turned Agenda 21’s concerns into concrete actions by highlighting results from UNU studies undertaken.
