Energy

A long-term solution to the energy problem is among the objectives and goals of the International Development Strategy for the Third United Nations Development Decade. To that end, it is recommended, inter alia, that efforts for the development and expansion of all energy resources be intensified; that the economies now primarily based on hydrocarbons for energy rely increasingly on new and renewable sources of energy; and that measures for the conservation of hydrocarbons be urgently adopted. The Strategy recognizes the increasing requirements of energy in developing countries and calls for promoting the exploration, development and expansion of all energy resources of developing countries. It urges the international community to devote financial and technical resources adequate for these purposes.
