AFAIK "Agenda 21" (a favorite hate target of so-called "conservatives" in t=
U.S.) is supposed to be about sustainability and based on local rather than=
national or international decision-making.
The conspiracy theorists have made a monster of it, but I don't think that'=
intention, or even the purpose of the "shady" (????) folks behind it.
Years ago I spent some time doing what might have been called "fisheries
extension work" in Nigerian villages. It's amazing what can be accomplishe=
local initiative, provided governments (authoritarian or otherwise) don't g=
too deeply involved. Support works; manipulation often does not (and doesn=
deserve to, but that's another, er, chant <G>).
