GOVERNANCE
6/16/1972
Participants from 114 countries come to Stockholm, Sweden, for the UN Conference on the Human Environment. Only one is an environment minister, as most countries do not yet have environmental agencies. The delegates adopt 109 recommendations for government action and push for the creation of the UN Environment Programme.
