The World Summit on Sustainable Development was held in Johannesburg, ten years after the Rio Earth Summit. Its goal was to assess the progress made since Rio de Janeiro. The findings were, however, disillusioning: in most countries of the world, the situation for the environment and population had actually deteriorated further. A resolution was taken to adopt an agenda with five key areas: by 2015, the share of the population without access to basic sanitary facilities is to be halved, negative impacts on human health minimized, the decline in global fish stocks brought to a halt, the loss of biodiversity arrested and national sustainability strategies developed. Almost all EU member states have adopted their own sustainability strategy.
