This paper analyses the processes and documents of two international conferences: the United Nations Conference on Development and Environment (UNCED) in 1992, and the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995. The analysis concludes that in order to consolidate what was achieved in the two conferences on gender and the environment, it is necessary to translate the general principles into laws and programmes, implement them and monitor their implementation. The document also proposes some implications for development cooperation agencies and suggests possible areas for action.
