Environmental Survey of Ogoniland: Project document
United Nations Environment Programme

In July 2006, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) received a formal request from the Government of Nigeria for “Supervision of Remediation of the Cleanup of Oil Contamination in Ogoniland”. In order to understand the context of the request and expectations from the Government, UNEP's Executive Director sent a mission to Nigeria. Following the initial scouting mission, a technical mission was sent to the River State to meet with the local government and stakeholders to explain to them the scope of the assessment and obtain their reaction. The team undertook an aerial reconnaissance over the entire area and ground-truthing visits to selected areas. The team also visited the SPDC office to collect various documents and maps related to Ogoniland oil fields. This project document is prepared based on the inputs received during the field visits.

Greening Universities Toolkit V2.0: Transforming Universities into Green and Sustainable Campuses: A Toolkit for Implementers - Advance Copy
United Nations Environment Programme

The objective of this Toolkit is to inspire, encourage and support universities to develop and implement their own transformative strategies for establishing green, resource-efficient and low carbon campuses. It will provide an opportunity to build stakeholder capacity to deliver systemic, institution-wide integration of sustainability principles into all aspects of university business. This initiative is intended to improve the sustainability performance of universities globally and to provide support to other stakeholders embarking on their own sustainability journeys. Further, it will enhance the practical relevance of universities to sustainable development and by extension, the new paradigm of the “green economy”. In short, the aim is to encourage and promote the contribution of universities to the overall sustainability of the planet. We cannot have a sustainable world where universities promote unsustainable – conversely, the sustainable university can help catalyse a more sustainable world.
