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.
