In this paper two things are done. First it is shown how a four-dimensional gauged Wess-Zumino-Witten term arises from the five-dimensional Einstein-Hilbert plus Gauss-Bonnet Lagrangian with a special choice of the coefficients. Second, the way in which the equations of motion of four-dimensional General Relativity arise is exhibited.
