About this Item

[2], 30 pages, plus covers. Illustrations. Cover has some wear and soiling. Introduction by Elizabeth Dowdswell, Executive Director of UNEP. An English language version was published by the UNEP Geneva Executive Center as C. O. 356. The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) is an agency of United Nations and coordinates its environmental activities, assisting developing countries in implementing environmentally sound policies and practices. It was founded by Maurice Strong, its first director, as a result of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment (Stockholm Conference) in June 1972 and has overall responsibility for environmental problems among United Nations agencies but international talks on specialized issues, such as addressing climate change or combating desertification, are overseen by other UN organizations, like the Bonn-based Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification. UN Environment activities cover a wide range of issues regarding the atmosphere, marine and terrestrial ecosystems, environmental governance and green economy. V. Elizabeth Dowdswell (born November 9, 1944) is the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, the 29th since Canadian Confederation. She is the viceregal representative of the Queen in Right of Ontario. Dowdswell entered public service, serving in Saskatchewan as deputy minister of culture and youth during the New Democratic Party government of Allan Blakeney, but was dismissed after the Progressive Conservative government of Grant Devine took power in 1982. She served in the federal public service in the 1980s, serving at one point as assistant deputy minister at Environment Canada with responsibility for the Atmospheric Environment Service and negotiating the Framework Convention on Climate Change. In 1992, Dowdswell was unanimously elected to lead the United Nations Environment Programme serving until 1998 at the rank of Under-Secretary-General. From 1998 to 2010, she was an adjunct professor at the McLaughlin-Rotman Centre for Global Health at the University of Toronto, while also serving as founding president and CEO of the Nuclear Waste Management Organization. From 2010 until her appointment at Lieutenant Governor, she was the president and CEO of the Council of Canadian Academies. Presumed First Russian Language Edition, First printing.
