Natural resources, energy and cartography

The use and conservation of natural resources and energy continued to be considered by a number of United Nations bodies in 1993. The Committee on Natural Resources held its first session as an expert committee in March/April following the 1992 restructuring of the United Nations in the economic and social fields. The Committee discussed, among other things, permanent sovereignty over mineral and water resources, new techniques for identifying those resources, small-scale mining activities in developing countries, and relevant matters arising from the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). The importance of the water and mineral resources programme in the context of sustainable development was brought to the attention of the Economic and Social Council.
