Johannesburg summit, type 2 partnership proposal : Worldwide French sustainable-development information system

A summary description and outline of the connection with Agenda 21 or the Millennium Declaration:

The aim of the project is to create an information and discussion platform for sustainable development that is accessible to the
various groups concerned (States and public administrations, local governments and international bodies, associations, the
economic sector, scientists and the academic community, and ordinary citizens) by facilitating exchanges and integration of the
available data on a network of Internet sites distributed throughout the French-speaking world.

The second objective is to develop the use of French regarding these topics for the sake of linguistic plurality at the
international level, thereby helping to reinforce the capacities of French-speaking participants, especially in the organization of
preliminary debates for major conferences. This platform is also an experimental ground for research and development into new
tools and approaches that will be transferred to the partners. It will be an extension of various projects and actions.
