Yearbook of the United Nations, 2000. Part 3, Economic and social questions. Chapter 6, Energy, natural resources and cartography
The development and conservation of natural resources and energy were considered by several United Nations bodies in 2000, including the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources for Development,which discussed water and land management in the context of sustainable development and other water-resource issues. The Committee also made recommendations to the Economic and Social Council on energy-related matters. IN December, the General Assembly, in a resolution on the World Solar Programme 1996-2005,emphasized the need to intensify research and development in support of sustainable energy development and encouraged the Secretary-General to continue to mobilize technical assistance and funding for national and regional renewable energy projects. The Fifteenth United Nations Regional Cartographic Conference for Asia and the Pacific was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in April. The Conference’s recommendations were endorsed by the Economic and Social Council in July. The Council also endorsed the recommendations of the United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names, which held its twentieth session in January. Consideration of the report of the International Atomic Energy Agency, which was presented to the Assembly in November, was deferred to the resumed fifty-fifth session in 2001.
