As its contribution to the work of the CSD, the Austrian
Government hosted a symposium on sustainable development and
international law in Baden bei Wein from 14 to 16 April 1994.
Approximately 40 experts, including international environmental
lawyers, academics, diplomats and members of various convention
secretariats attended the three-day symposium. The
recommendations of this symposium were presented to the CSD in
May, as one of several government-sponsored activities intended
to provide the CSD with concrete recommendations for the
implementation of Agenda 21.
