Conference was held at Loy Henderson Auditorium at the US Department of State. Sponsored by the Department of State's Bureau of Intelligence and Research, the conference focused on identifying steps to more effectively monitor environmental change and sustainable development. Seventeen presenters from federal agencies, NGOs, and the private sector addressed ways the international community -- and in particular the US government -- might take advantage of the convergence of technical capabilities, multidisciplinary research, and institutional global affairs commitments to move forward on implementing Agenda 21.
Geographic Information System(GIS) was discussed as a powerful electronic tool for organizing and analyzing dissimilar environment/development data sets.
