Natural resources and energy

The use and conservation of natural resources, particularly water and minerals, and the efficiency and development of energy were the focus of attention of a number of United Nations bodies in 1996. Concerns set out in "Agenda 21", adopted at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, were taken into consideration. The Economic and Social Council at its mid-year session took action on a number of issues related to water resources, minerals and energy, based on the work of two of its subsidiary bodies.
