Reaffirms that the UN system is the appropriate forum for concerted political action on global environmental problems; considers that the structure of the UN and its responsiveness in dealing with major environmental issues should be reviewed in order to strengthen its capacity to deal with these matters in an integrated, coherent and effective way, and requests the Secretary-General to prepare a report on this issue; reaffirms the need to provide new and additional financial resources to support developing countries in identifying, analysing, monitoring, preventing and managing environmental problems and also for measures aimed at solving major environmental problems of global concern; stresses that sustainable and environmentally sound development requires changes in the pattern of production and consumption, particularly in industrialized countries, and stresses also the need to examine modalities for supporting all countries in their efforts to create and develop their endogenous technological capacities in the field of scientific research and development; urges the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to take the necessary steps to ensure the participation of developing countries in scientific and policy aspects of its work, and calls upon the international community to consider contributing generously to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Trust Fund; supports the request made by the Governing Council that the Executive Director of UNEP in co-operation with the Secretary-General of WMO begin preparations for negotiations on a framework convention on climate.
