Nairobi + 10 : Mycotoxins 1987 - Report of the Second Joint FAO/WHO/IJNEP International Conference on Mycotoxins
United Nations Environment Programme, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, World Health Organization

The magnitude of the problem is such that in 1975 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted a resolution calling on Governments and international organizations to make efforts to reduce food losses in developing countries by 50% by 1985. As a consequence FAO established in 1977 a programme for the prevention of food losses and, in 1983 UNEP published guidelines for the reduction of such losses. In response to the same General Assembly Resolution, a Joint FAO/UNEP Conference on Mycotoxins was convened in Nairobi, Kenya, in September 1977.Since then, and over the past 10 years, national governments and international organizations such as FAQ, WHO and UNEP have carried out a number of activities in these areas. Such activities at the international level and complementary studies by national and international research institutions have increased the understanding of the mycotoxin problem and have shown the effectiveness of certain approaches in controlling mycotoxin contamination.

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 the dealing with the 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.

Global Material Flows and Resource Productivity: Assessment Report for the UNEP International Resource Panel
United Nations Environment Programme, International Resource Panel

This report finds that global material use has tripled over the past four decades, with annual global extraction of materials growing from 22 billion tonnes (1970) to 70 billion tonnes (2010). It also provides a new material footprint indicator, reporting the amount of materials that are required for final consumption, which sheds light on the true impact of economies. By relating global supply chains to final demand for resources, the indicator is a good proxy for the average material standard of living in a country. It indicates that the level of development and well-being in wealthy industrial countries has been achieved largely through highly resource-intensive patterns of consumption and production, which are not sustainable, even less replicable to other parts of the world.

Climate Change Mitigation - Factsheet
United Nations Environment Programme

The world knows all too well the threat that climate change poses to human health, economies and the environment. United action is needed to hit the 1.5°C temperature rise target. Together, UN Environment and the GEF are providing the technical know-how, funding and implementation experience needed to improve energy efficiency, promote renewable energy, and encourage low-carbon technologies. From transport, to power generation, to energy efficient homes, industries and cities, they have worked together on more than 140 projects. UN Environment-led projects funded under the current GEF 6 cycle alone have mitigated CO2-equivalent emissions of almost 7.5 million tonnes to date.
