Abstract

Seoul started the formulation of a Local Agenda 21 (LA21) in 1995. Today, a citizen group called “The Citizens’ Committee for a Green Seoul” is taking the lead in promoting LA21 activities in cooperation with Seoul’s Chamber of Commerce (a business task force) and the city’s 25 wards (a citizen task force). In promoting actual projects, the metropolitan government extends financial support to projects led by citizen groups and NGOs through its “Invitation of Citizens’ Project Proposals”, in an effort to get citizens involved in LA21 implementation. Meanwhile, the metropolitan government is actively reviewing LA21 and has put the first revisions into effect in March 2000. It also plans to introduce 27 indicators to evaluate the progress of LA21 in 2001.
