State of the Future: A View from 2005 – A Response from South Africa

Rasigan Maharajh
  • "While we stand ready to do more, our national circumstances must be acknowledged. Any future commitments for developing countries must be consistent with their capabilities, their sustainable development objectives, and take into account the current structure of their economies...
  • Such commitments must ultimately map out a proactive, sustainable and equitable growth path which meets our objectives to eradicate poverty while at the same addressing climate change.
  • To assist South Africa in preparing for such commitments, Cabinet has approved a process of scenario-planning which will, within the next year, formulate and examine future scenarios to proactively shape our longer term domestic policy and capacity-building (challenges).” [DEAT: 2005]
