African Centre for Technology Studies ; Woods Hole Research Center (1990)

The International Conference on Global Warming and Climatic Change: African Perspectives was held at the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya (May 2-4, 1990) to examine the possible impacts of global climatic change on the ecosystems, economies and infrastructure of African countries. Participants from the continent and other researchers from around the world presented the most recent data, models and case studies on the anticipated global warming and its impacts. The Declaration is addressed particularly to African policy-makers and researchers as well as to governments and interested parties globally. The Declaration calls for immediate action on policies to support research, review of planned development, strengthening of on- going environmental conservation measures and cancellation of international debt as well as revision of trade policies to enable African countries to apply their resources to adjusting to climatic change.
