The creation of the NSDS was not regarded as an end in itself. To not only foster top-down NSDS processes, LA 21 projects were initiated with the support of UNDP. Currently, approximately 33 communities have completed or are in the process of completing Local SD Strategies. The NSDS points out that in order to implement the objectives, policies and mechanisms initiated by the Government in the "Agenda 21", the involvement of all social groups is necessary. Women, young people and NGOs are specifically mentioned in a sub-chapter and their contribution to SD is highlighted.
