Brundtland Report

The Brundtland Report, Our Common Future, is so named for having been authored by a United Nations (UN) commission chaired by the former prime minister of Norway, Gro Harlem Brundtland. The United Nations established the World Commission on Environment and Development, and charged it with articulating a long-term vision for development to the year 2000 and beyond. This vision of sustainable development focused primarily on the concept of inter-generational equity; in other words, the focus was on preserving the environment in the future in order to enable future generations to meet their own development needs.
