Democratic People's Republic of Korea: State of the Environment Report
Ministry of Land and Environment Protection ( MLEP), Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

The objectives of the DPR Korea State of the Environment ( SoE) report are: identify the key environmental issues that act as barriers to attain sustainable development, and provide policy settings and options that can be undertaken to offset any negative environmental trends. Five priority key environmental issues have been identified by the Government of DPR Korea through the consultative process following the UNEP guidelines. The five priority issues are (1) forest depletion, (2) water quality degradation, (3) air pollution, (4) land degradation, and (5) biodiversity. The Pressure-State-Impact-Response (P-S-I-R) framework analysis has been used to evaluate the five environmental issues.

Environment in Iraq : UNEP Progress Report : 2003
United Nations Environment Programme

The report provides updated information about the evolving environmental situation in Iraq, with a view to highlighting priority areas for action. In addition to other sources, it draws its information from two fact-finding missions that UNEP was able to field to Iraq in July and August 2003. Unfortunately, however, the security front remains unstable, seriously curtailing the United Nations margin of manoeuvre in Iraq.
