ASIA-AFRICA COOPERATION ON ECO-PARTNERSHIP

I. BACKGROUND

The United Nations, in collaboration with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG), organized a World Conference in May 1998 on International Cooperation of Cities and Citizens for Cultivating an Eco-Society, later known as Eco-Partnership Tokyo. The main purpose of this Conference was to clarify the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders involved in cultivating an eco-society and to propose supporting systems that promote sustainable development of cities.

At the conclusion of the Eco-Partnership Tokyo Conference, a declaration was issued by the participants that delineated the commitment of the participating cities to cultivate an eco-society in partnership with citizens, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), private and public enterprises and governmental institutions. In order to improve the urban environment for the present and future generations, the declaration emphasized the need to address the already serious challenges faced by cities related to waste management, air quality, water pollution, transportation and energy use.

The declaration also called for the United Nations, in cooperation with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, to formulate new proposals for human resources development programmes, including workshops and training programmes, aimed at building an eco-society, as well as information exchange programmes on innovative practices which would complement and strengthen existing ones.

Similarly, the second Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD II), held in Tokyo in October 1998, affirmed that environment management is essential for sustainable development, as high population growth continues to place a heavy burden on Africas natural resources base. The Conference recommended that policies, plans and decision-making processes for African development should reflect these pressing environmental issues.

As a follow-up to these two events, i.e., Eco-Partnership Tokyo and TICAD II, the United Nations organized an international cooperation programme to assist African and Asian metropolitan cities in developing eco-societies in their respective cities. As a first step, selected Asian and African cities were targeted to benefit from these initiatives with a possibility of extending this type of programme to other parts of the world in the near future
