Global Climate Change Digest

A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d93mar4

"The Rio Conference: A View from India," B.N. Gupta (Indus. Toxicol. Res. Ctr., Lucknow, India), Environ. Sci. Technol., 27(2), 217-218, Feb. 1993.

India must not imitate the route to development taken by the industrialized countries; diverse problems such as lack of education and poor health must be tackled before sustainable development is possible.

Item #d93mar5

"The Rio Earth Summit: What Does It Mean?" J. Schnoor (Ctr. Global Environ. Res., Univ. Iowa, Iowa City IA 52242), ibid., 27(1), 18-22, Jan. 1993.

Gives a concise summary of and commentary on the four major documents signed at the Earth Summit: the Climate Convention, Agenda 21, the Rio Declaration, and the Biodiversity Treaty.

Item #d93mar6

"Getting Beyond Rio," B. Boxer (Dept. Human Ecol., Rutgers Univ., New Brunswick NJ 08903), Issues Sci. Technol., 9(2), 42-48, Winter 1992-1993.

Practical, small-scale, locally oriented programs, not vague international agreements, will improve the global environment. The U.S. has a two-decade record of bilateral programs that have produced sound results and can serve as a model for future efforts.

Item #d93mar7

"Outlining the Organization's Response to the Rio Agenda," Secy. General Subroto (Org. Petroleum Exporting States, Obere Danaustr. 93, 1020 Vienna, Austria), OPEC Bull., 23(8), 4-10, Sep. 1992.

OPEC accepts the challenges that environmental issues are laying at its door; they deserve a fair response. To ensure that the concerns of the oil industry form part of the debate, the industry must put environmental issues at the top of its agenda. Preserving and expanding afforestation--with appropriate compensation for developing countries--may benefit the environment in the short-term.

Item #d93mar8

"Balancing Economic Development with Environmental Protection in Developing and Lesser Developed Countries," M.T. El-Ashry (Environ. Dept., World Bank, 1818 H St. NW, Washington DC 20433), Air & Waste (formerly J. Air Waste Mgmt. Assoc.), 43(1), 18-24, Jan. 1993.

Discusses the requirements for successful integration of environment and development, such as economic policy reform at the micro and macro levels, greater reliance on market-oriented measures, and building of institutional capacities.

Item #d93mar9

"Pollution Prevention and its Role in Sustainable Economic Development," H. Mattos de Lemos (UNEP Inst., Brazil), ibid., 42(12), 1550-1551, Dec. 1992.

Comments on the Earth Summit and what it revealed about the impact of business, poverty and population on the goals of sustainable development. Includes specific recommendations for preventing pollution.
