Dr. Professor Mostafa Tolba addressing conference.
TOLBA: "One of our principal tasks in this conference is to establish clear guide lines for an international action plan; human environmental programme. In its early phase this programme should direct a substantial part of its resources towards enhancing the capacities of developing countries to solve problems of environmental management and to participate meaningfully in international programmes of research and monitoring. This means that the new U.N. machinery for leadership and coordination of the human environmental programme, and the new financial resources that may be available should set a five or ten-year plan of action with the objective of development of environmental problem-solving national machineries in developing countries."
