NEW UNEP DIRECTOR


Item #d93mar113

Elizabeth Dowdeswell of Canada became executive director of the U.N. Environment Program in January, replacing Moustafa Tolba, who retired after 17 years of service. Dowdeswell had been an assistant deputy minister for Environment Canada for atmospheric programs. At a January briefing organized by the World Resources Institute in Washington, she outlined how UNEP must shift its focus from managing environmental crises (such as stratospheric ozone depletion and climate change), to preventing them by fostering sustainable development. See Chem. Eng. News, p. 7, Jan. 18 1993; Intl. Environ. Rptr., p. 40, Jan. 27 1993.
