(5) Sixth Committee

Resolution 5½06 concerns the elaboration of the "Convention on the law of the non-navigational uses of international watercourses." It takes note of the Report of the Working Group of the Whole, which was convened at the beginning of the 51st session of the GA to elaborate a framework convention on the law of the non-navigational uses of international watercourses on the basis of the International Law Commission draft articles. Although the Working Group made some progress in the elaboration of the convention, considerable differences of opinion between upper riparians and lower riparians made it impossible to conclude the work in one session. Therefore, the GA decided to convene a second session of the Working Group of the Whole of the Sixth Committee, 24 March through 4 April 1997, to finalize it.

17. UNITED NATIONS INSTITUTE FOR TRAINING AND RESEARCH (UNITAR)

(1) Training Programmes to Facilitate the Implementation of International Environmental Agreements and Policy Initiatives

In 1996, UNITAR continued to expand and strengthen its training and capacity building programmes to assist developing countries and countries with economies in transition to implement international environmental agreements and policy initiatives. Training programmes on international agreements for which formal cooperation projects were in place include the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the London Guidelines for the Exchange of Information on Chemicals in International Trade, and the Basel Convention on the Transboundary Movement of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal. Closely linked to these programmes, UNITAR further developed its training programme in international environmental law. Through other programmes UNITAR assisted countries in strengthening national chemicals management, thereby enhancing countries' abilities to implement relevant international policy initiatives. UNITAR's programmes in the environmental field are conducted in the context of followup to the UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) and implementation of Agenda 21.
