image of Yearbook of the United Nations 1992

The principal reference work of the United Nations, providing a comprehensive, one-volume account of the Organization’s work along with information on the work of each specialized agency in the United Nations’ family.




With the global environment having grown worse than it was two decades previously, despite all efforts deployed, the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in 1992 adopted the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, seeking international agreements to protect the integrity of the global environmental and developmental systems. The Conference also adopted Agenda 21, reflecting a global consensus on development and environment cooperation, and a statement of principles on the management, conservation and sustainable development of all types of forests. Two conventions—the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Convention on Biological Diversity—were opened for signature at the Conference.
