In 1993, issues relating to information, effects of atomic radiation and Antarctica continued to be on the General Assembly’s agenda. The Assembly adopted resolutions on promotion of communication and the free flow of information (resolution 48/44 A) and on United Nations public information activities (48/44 B). It requested the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation to continue its work on the levels, effects and risks of ionizing radiation from all sources (48/38). The Assembly reaffirmed the need to promote further public awareness of Antarctica’s importance to the ecosystem, encouraged the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Parties to increase cooperation with a view to reducing the number of scientific stations on that continent, and urged the international community to ensure protection of the Antarctic environment (48/80).
