The Rio Declaration on Environment and Development (1992) established 27 principles intended to guide sustainable development around the world.

The Review of implementation of Agenda 21 and the Rio Principles (January 2012) provides an assessment of the progress and gaps made in the implementation of Agenda 21 and the Rio Principles. The traffic light translation of qualitative assessments yielded this scorecard (see ''Contents'' for topic of each principle):

Excellent progress/ fully achieved Principles 21, 25,
Good progress/ on target Principles 18, 26,
Limited progress/ far from target Principles 1, 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 22, 23, 24, 27,
