The General Assembly of the United Nations decided to convene a global conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm in 1972 by resolution 2398 (XXTII) of 3 December 1968. On 15 December 1969, it further reaffirmed, by resolution 2581(XXEV), that the conference should serve as a practical means to encourage, and to provide guidelines for action by Governments and international organizations designed to protect and improve the human environment, and to remedy and prevent its impairment, by means of international co-operation, bearing in mind the particular importance of enabling developing countries to forestall occurrences of such problems.
