The Brundtland Report, ‘Our Common Future’, was published in 1987 by the United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development (UNWCED). Chaired by Gro Harlem Brundtland, is regarded as a landmark report that placed environmental issues on the global political agenda in a way that they had not been up to that point.
The report sought to to establish a 'global agenda for change', highlighting a sustainable development path, by approaching the environment and development as a single issue., with its targets being the multilateralism and interdependence of nations.
‘…development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.’
