A global overview of wetland and marine protected areas on the World Heritage List
United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (United Nations Environment Programme-WCMC)

This working paper provides a global overview of the current coverage of existing World Heritage sites with wetland and marine values and suggests potential wetland areas which may merit future nomination to the World Heritage List. Wetlands are among the most productive natural environments on earth. They provide substantial social and economic benefits to humans as well as habitat for numerous species. With only an estimated 5.7 million sq. km of wetlands remaining in the world, they continue to be one of the most threatened biomes.

Implications of Proposed CO2 Emissions Limitations
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

This technical report is aimed at providing information on the implications of Annex I country CO2 emissions for global CO2 emissions and the consequences of these emissions limitations for CO2 concentration. This report gives a summary of the results of this study looking at various factors namely: emissions, stabilization, concentration and temperature and sea level. A comprehensive description and quantification of emissions limitation proposals is made by the report. It also discusses global emissions under the emissions limitation proposals relative to the requirements of the CO2 concentration stabilization (Article 2 of the Framework Convention on Climate Change). It also presents a proposal on emissions limitations relative to stabilization requirements. The results of calculations for the consequences on the global mean temperature and sea level as a result of the proposed CO2 emissions limitations is also presented in this report.

State of the world's protected areas at the end of the twentieth century
United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (United Nations Environment Programme-WCMC)

Protected areas are widely held to be among the most effective means of conserving biological diversity in situ (McNeely and Miller, 1984||MacKinnon et ai, 1986||Leader Williams et al, 1990). A considerable amount of resources has been invested in their establishment over the last century or more, with the result that most countries have established or, at least, planned national systems of protected areas. The purpose of this paper is to examine the extent of the world's protected areas globally and regionally and to consider other options for its further strengthening and development during the twenty-first century.
