Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1984 
198 p. 

This report provides a comprehensive overview of the major activities, programs, events, and developments within the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in 1983. Its purpose is to provide a broad understanding of what UNEP is, how it functions, and what it does with the money it has at its disposal. Chapter I summarizes 1983 in terms of the environment. Chapter II describes legislative measures adapted by three intergovernmental bodies (UNEP Governing Council, Economic and Social Council, and General Assembly) which had a direct bearing on the work of the UNEP. Chapter III discusses the principal ways and means through which the UNEP exercised its coordinating and catalytic role during 1983. Chapter IV reviews major developments in three environmental program areas: environmental assessment (earthwatch); environmental management; and supporting measures (which include environmental education, environmental training, and information). Chapter V examines the use of resources available to the Environment Fund in 1983 and management of established trust funds. Chapter VI reviews central management of the UNEP. Supporting documentation in appendices includes statistical data related to the environment fund, list of meetings held in 1983, list of publications and papers issues in 1983, and list of member states of the Governing Council.
