Example text

Agenda 21 avoids the family planning issue. Both Agenda 21 and Voice of the Eagle state that human health is deteriorating although Voice of the Eagle says this applies to spiritual and emotional as well as physical health. Naturally, different solutions are suggested. Voice of the Eagle focuses on holistic treatment and the recognition of ‘natural medicines’ as valuable and sacred, while Agenda 21 emphasizes preventive practices. In Agenda 21, indigenous peoples are singled out as a ‘vulnerable group’ with respect to health because ‘their relationship with traditional lands has been fundamentally changed’.

The six agendas which make poverty a priority define it as a lack of means to obtain the physical essentials of daily living. Youth ’92 and the NGO Poverty Treaty both point out poverty’s negative effects on the mental and spiritual well-being of individuals, and Youth ’92 criticizes the fact that poverty is so often defined in economic terms only. The main causes of poverty are identified as the inequity of current income distribution and unequal access to needed resources (Agenda 21, Youth ’92, Women’s Action Agenda 21, NGO Alternative Treaties).

Naturally, different solutions are suggested. Voice of the Eagle focuses on holistic treatment and the recognition of ‘natural medicines’ as valuable and sacred, while Agenda 21 emphasizes preventive practices. In Agenda 21, indigenous peoples are singled out as a ‘vulnerable group’ with respect to health because ‘their relationship with traditional lands has been fundamentally changed’. Suggested remedial activities include ‘strengthening, through resources and self-management, preventative and curative health services’ for indigenous peoples and their communities, and integrating traditional knowledge and experience into health systems.
