Where does Agenda 21 address population reduction?

There are three main documents that direct the United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda 21 program, including the approximately 1150 page Global Biodiversity Assessment Report which was issued at the same 1992 Rio Earth Summit Conference where Agenda 21 was unveiled. The other core documents are the Earth Charter and the actual Agenda 21 document.

Here’s the link to page 773 of the Global Biodiversity Assessment Report:


And also some general information on the population reduction statement and related documents:

The Global Biodiversity Assessment Report put out by the United Nations, page 773, calls for a population reduction to 1 billion people. (An exception is provided: if the world is de-industrialized, a peasant population of 4- 5 billion is to be allowed.)

The UN’s Global Biodiversity Assessment Report states:

“Population growth has exceeded the capacity of the biosphere”

“It is estimated that an “agricultural world in which most human beings are peasants, should be able to support 5 to 7 billion people”

“In contrast, a reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at the present North American material standard of living would be 1 billion”

The Global Biodiversity Assessment Report also makes numerous calls for the abolition of private property by calling for such things as the elimination of suburban housing, ski resorts, golf courses, and much, much more. Freedom Advocates’ article entitled What is “Unsustainable”? now has scanned copies of the direct pages from the Global Biodiversity Assessment book.
