Abstract

'Local Agenda 21 (LA21) under the 1992 Earth Summit charter highlighted the important role of local governments in promoting sustainable development by working with local communities. By ratifying the charter, Australia has embraced the principles of Local Agenda 21 (LA21) and is therefore required to include it into local strategies and planning.' Case studies include Blacktown and Penrith in Western Sydney, NSW; and Maroochy and Ipswich in South East Queensland.
