9. UKG Panel on Sustainable Development

The Panel was set-up in January 1994 to provide independent advice to the Government on strategic sustainable development issues. Each year the Panel reported directly to the Prime Minister on a number of topics of its own choosing and the Government responded officially to the Panel's recommendations. In May 1999 the Government announced that the Panel and the UK Round Table on Sustainable Development were to be subsumed into a new body, the Sustainable Development Commission. Sir Crispin Tickell's term as the Convenor of the Panel came to an end on 29 February 2000 which marked the end of the Panel's existence.
