Caring for the Earth also provides specific guidelines for regulating the operations of business and industry (for example, adoption of the polluter-pays principle) and encourages governments to develop more effective legislation to control practices such as packaging and disposal of hazardous substances. Agenda 21 places greater weight on increasing self-regulation. There are several similarities between Agenda 21, which focuses on the need for more efficient production, and the Youth Action Guide with its broader appeal for business to work towards achieving sustainable development and a list of reasons why this is necessary (such as current short-term planning rather than life-cycle analysis, industrial production of toxic waste, lack of industry standards).

The agendas disagree on remedial action. The Women’s Action Agenda 21 calls for the cancellation of foreign debt, while Agenda 21 states, more generally, the need to provide adequate financial resources to developing countries. Youth ’92, noting the economic inequality between North and South resulting from colonization, the programmes of international financial institutions and high foreign debt, also proposes cancelling the foreign debt of developing countries, a policy not mentioned in Agenda 21.

23 AGENDAS FOR SUSTAINABILITY Agenda 21 and the Youth Action Guide recognize the interrelated nature of environment and development and emphasize the link between increased trade liberalization and better environmental management. The Youth Action Guide proposes self-restructuring by multinational corporations to allow for more local decision-making. Both documents propose reducing and rescheduling the foreign debt of developing countries under conditions such as accepting terms of economic adjustment policies (Agenda 21) or debtfor-nature exchanges (Youth Action Guide).
