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.

Project Proposal Document: Toward an Ecosystem Approach for Sustaining the Agulhas and Somali Current Large Marine Ecosystems
United Nations Development Programme, Global Environment Facility

This Project is one of three, perhaps four individual Projects, involving each of the GEF Implementing Agencies, in the same geographic area with worked that is linked so that a programmatic approach is developed to conserve the living resources of these two systems and their habitat. Such an approach and program is consistent with and supports WSSD, LME based targets of achieving an ecosystem approach by 2010 and a sustainable fisheries regime by 2015. Each of the projects within the programmatic approach will complement programs aimed at poverty reduction, sustainable livelihoods and food security targets, as well as addressing issues pertinent to SIDS. This new approach constitutes a test or pilot in the focal area, with this Concept being the third in a series of related Concepts representing the application of lessons learned in the BCLME to the A&S LMEs, where there exists significantly less understanding and management capacity. This Concept, as well as the overall Program also is consistent with the Barbados Plan of Action for SIDS, and could be highlighted as part of the planned Barbados Plus Ten international conference scheduled to be held in Mauritius in September, 2004.

NGO Participation in the UNEP Environmental Education Programme: Project No. FP/0301-77-03 - Terminal Project Report
United Nations Environment Programme

In August 1977, the Environment Liaison Centre (ELC) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) entered into a joint programme to strengthen global activity, and especially non-government organisation (NGO) activity, ln the field of environmental education. Representatives of developing world NGO5 were sponsored to the UNESCO/UNEP Intergovernmental Conference on Environmental Education held in Tbilisi, USSR, from 14-26 October 1977. Following the Conference, these same NGO representatives, as well as 45 other representatives of NGOs, attended the NGO Workshop for Environmental Education Cooperation, held in Geneva, Switzerland, 28-30 October 1977.

Recommendations coming from the Workshop were carried out by the two Project Coordinators. They divided the Follow-up Phase of the Project into two parts. One Project Coordinator developed a project proposal to encourage the development of NGO environmental education activities region-ally through the publication of a bulletin after the completion of this project. The other developed the network of NGOs active in environmental education through correspondence and the production of a newsletter, 'EE
Switchboard', to share news between NGOs on environmental education.
