I - Protection of the marine environment from land-based activities

37. In paragraph 17.26 of Agenda 21, endorsed by the General Assembly in its 47/190 of 22 December 1992, the Governing Council was invited to convene, as soon as practicable, an intergovernmental meeting on protection of the marine environment from land-based activities. In response to that invitation, the Council, in its decision 17/20 of 21 Nay 1993, inter alia, authorized the Executive Director to implement the recommendations of the Rio de Janeiro Conference and decided on a workplan, timetable and budget for the preparatory process and the intergovernmental meeting itself, which would be held in Washington, D.C. in 1995.
