Activities of the United Nations environment programme related to disarmament

The Declaration on the Human Environment adopted by the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, held at Stockholm in June 1972 and endorsed by the General Assembly, clearly states in principle 26 that “Man and his environment must be spared the effects of nuclear weapons and all other means of mass destruction. States must strive to reach prompt agreement, in the relevant international organs, on the elimination and complete destruction of such weapons” . Since the creation of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), its Governing Council has adopted a number of resolutions and also some of the UNEP’s activities are related to that principle for the enhancement of the environment. A brief review of such resolutions and activities is given in this appendix.
