    Agenda 21 is a non-binding action plan implemented by the UN designed to promote sustainable development.  The main goals of Agenda 21 include combating poverty by promoting healthy and sustainable consumption patterns in developing nations, the conservation of fragile ecosystems and biodiversity, the proper management of biotechnology and radioactive waste products, and working to lower deforestation rates.  Those against Agenda 21 say that the action plan takes control away from individual land owners and farmers in favor of granting greater regulatory powers to the government.
