MISSION: The Hungarian Commission on Sustainable Development (H-CSD) is a permanent interdepartmental commission responsible for coordinating the implementation of the UNCED tasks and other sustainable development matters. The basic objective is to evaluate the development plans of all sectors from an environmental point of view and to harmonize the sometimes conflicting priorities of such plans with those of environmental protection and conservation. The highest priority should be given to avoiding further environmental load, unreasonable and inefficient resource use, and production and emission of pollution and waste.
