Natural resources, energy and cartography

Issues related to the use and conservation of natural resources and energy were considered by several UN bodies during 1990. The Committee on New and Renewable Sources of Energy, which met in March/April, had among its substantive themes the contribution of new and renewable sources of energy to integrated rural development and direct solar-to-electrical energy conversion. In December, the General Assembly urged that greater attention be given to the development and efficient use of new and renewable sources of energy for the rural sector, bearing in mind the depletion of the fuelwood supply taking place in many regions of the world.
