Environmental problems of the Marine and Coastal area of Pakistan: National Report - UNEP Regional Seas and Studies No. 77
United Nations Environment Programme

As a first follow-up activity to decision 11/7 of the governing council, the Executive Director of UNEP convened, in cooperation with South Asian cooperative Environment programme (SACEP), a meeting on national focal points of the states of the region in order to seek their views on how to proceed in developing a comprehensive action plan for the protection and management of the marine and coastal environment of the South Asia seas region. The meeting discussed steps leading to the adoption of an action plan and reached a consensus on the items to be considered for further development of the action plan. This would include a review of the geographic scope, the objectives, and priority areas of regional concern, the institutional arrangements, and the financial arrangements. The meeting recommended that the government, with the assistance of UNEP and other organizations as appropriate, should initiate the preparation of country reports reviewing their: national environmental problems defined as priority areas of regional concern||Activities which may usefully be carried out under action plan to resolve or mitigate these problems||national, institutional and manpower resources which are or may be, involved in dealing with these problems including the identification of the need to strengthen their capability. The present document is a country report on environmental problems in India prepared by experts designated by focal point of India for the development of the action plan.

Mycotoxins—Biogenesis and Mechanism of Action
United Nations Environment Programme, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

The study of principles governing the biosynthesis of mycotoxins by microscopic fungi, the determination of the sequence of reactions of biotransformation of mycotoxins in on animal organism, and the decoding of molecular and cellular mechanisms of their action are definitely the most important research trends in the area of mycotoxins. Considering that prevention of the formation of mycotoxins by producer fungi is the most effective measure of prophylaxis of alimentary mycotoxicoses in man and farm animals, one can fully appreciate the attention given by mycologists and biochemists to the peculiar features of mycotoxin biogenesis under various environmental conditions. It is likewise natural that all medical measures towards the removal or decreasing the extent of toxic action of mycotoxins upon men or animal should be founded upon thorough understanding of the metabolism of these foreign compounds and the mechanism of their action on the cellular and molecular levels.
