On October 8, 1974, a special meeting was convened in Cocoyoc, Mexico, by two United Nations bodies charged with questions of technological and economic import, UNCTAD and UNEP. The meeting was composed of experts serving in their individual capacities, presided over by Lady Barbara Jackson. Since the purpose of the gathering was to discuss the implications of technologies destructive of the physical environment in terms of overall considerations of quality of life, economic development, social harmony, and international concord its conclusions speak directly to the issues addressed in this volume. These conclusions are among the first systematic attempts to state, under United Nations auspices, the connections between the issues of environmental protection and the redistribution of global economic and social resources. We therefore reprint the "Cocoyoc Declaration" in its entirety.
