EU pledges Johannesburg summit follow-up

The EU general affairs council has adopted a first ministerial response to the Johannesburg world sustainability summit. Echoing initial reactions from the European Commission (EED 11/09/02), foreign ministers welcomed the summit's outcomes and pledged action to ensure internal and international follow-up and implementation. Other EU ministerial groups have been asked to report back by November on summit commitments relevant to their competencies and "how they can be taken forward". See meeting minutes.
