The article then reviews why the United States ought to provide international assistance for sustainable development. Then it examines the level of U.S. ODA, prior to the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janiero and post-Rio, and compares U.S. actions with those of other nations. The article concludes with the recommendations for the United States and for the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg.
