Item #d90jun92

Global climate and environment were the topics of heated debate at the latest United Nations General Assembly, according to the Feb.-Apr. 1990 issue of UNEP North America News. A difficult compromise was reached between industrialized countries and the "Group of 77" developing countries over how to draft a climate treaty. The next (45th) General Assembly will take into account the results of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), as well as input from the Conference on Environment and Development planning committee (where developing countries are expected to have more influence). The structure of the conference, planned for Brazil in June of 1992, also brought on debate, but priority issues are to include climate change, ozone depletion and transboundary pollution.
