The Stockholm Conference and its Aftermath
This chapter deals with the Stockholm Conference and its aftermath. The Stockholm Conference had four main goals: to agree a Declaration on the Human Environment and an Action Plan, to discuss the formation of an environmental fund, and to consider creating a new environmental institution. As soon as the conference began, the United States was confronted with a barrage of criticism. The catalyst for this assault was the war in Vietnam compounded by demands for a ban on the testing of nuclear weapons. The issue of nuclear testing was eventually agreed through semantic inventiveness and the conference accepted the Declaration as a whole by acclamation, subject to the various observations and qualifications of nations like the United States.
