Item #d89apr9

As a follow-up to last June's Toronto conference on the changing atmosphere, a Meeting of Legal and Policy Experts was held in Ottawa in late February 1989 to begin developing an international accord for the protection of the atmosphere. The 80 participants, a broad spectrum of experts from developed and developing countries, discussed the legal and institutional framework for dealing with emerging atmospheric problems, agreed where possible on the basis of an umbrella convention framework, and identified areas of possible disagreement. The meeting recommended that one or more international conventions with appropriate protocols are urgently needed, especially to limit greenhouse warming.

The guidelines and approaches developed are summarized in a 15-page report available from Domestic Commun. Div., Dept. External Affairs, 125 Sussex Dr., Ottawa, Ont. K1A 0G2, Can. See also Intl. Environ. Rptr., 108-109, Mar. 1989.
