The State of the Environment 1983: Selected Topics

United Nations Environment Programme (1983)

The present state of the environment report deals with three topics of international significance selected by the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Programme at its tenth session: two contemporary issues (hazardous waste and acid rain) and one of a "futuristic" nature (environmental aspects of energy farms). In order to sharpen the focus of treatment of these problems, the presentation is given under four main headings: facts and figures, the problem, major actions taken or planned, and concluding remarks.
