Background: Scientists from Africa, Asia and latin American gathered in Nairobi over the weekend for a five-day seminar to discuss working reports on methods of improving the environment throughout Africa -- with emphasis on agriculture, wild life, and human living conditions. The seminar, which began on Monday (February 18), is being held under the auspices of the United Nations Environment Programme, which was set up following the first international environmental conference in Sweden in 1972. Another international bo???, the Scientific Commission on the Problems of the Environment, is a co-sponsor.
The seminar is being held in one of Africa's most luxurious and efficient meeting places, the Kenyatta Conference Centre. The delegates will issue instructions to implement measures to control and improve the environment throughout the areas of Africa after studying and discussing scientific sub-committee working reports recommending various such measures.
