    Agenda 2002 and Beyond "at the Radison Fort George Hotel on Earth Day, Monday 22~ April. Ministers of government, representatives from UDP and We the People, the diplomatic corps, the commercial sector, the non-governmental community and other invited guests were introduced to BAS' uncompromising assessment of the state of the environment, intended to influence all sectors to take action on key issues to secure long-term sustainability of Belize's environment and natural resources for the benefit of all. The Agenda details concerns within 12 key sectors that directly impact the environment, and Valdemar Andrade, Executive Director of BAS, presented a summary, focusing on the overarching concerns of lack of policy and outdated legislation, insufficient enforcement of laws and underfunded statutory bodies, poor inter-agency coordination and insufficient consultation, accountability and transparency. David Craig, President of BAS, challenged the government to address the problems outlined in the Agenda, and to do so in partnership with other sectors.
