Natural resources, energy and cartography

Natural resources exploration and use and energy management continued to be dealt with by several United Nations bodies in 1994. In the context of sustainable development, environmental concerns, including conservation and the promotion of new and renewable sources of energy, gained prominence.

It also made recommendations regarding the environmental effects of mining.
