In anticipation of the 8th Special Session of the Governing Council of the Global Ministerial Environment Forum, the United National Environment Programme has created this helpful website that brings together some of the important preliminary documents dealing with the proceedings of the March 2004 conference in South Korea. The documents here include working briefing documents, information documents, and papers dealing with the theme of the environmental dimension of water, sanitation, and human settlements. While some of these documents merely offer the provisional agenda for the conference, others are quite relevant to broader concerns, such as the "Overview of progress on international environment governance" and "Prevention and control of dust and sandstorms in the north-east Asia." Needless to say, many of the documents are available in English, Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, and Spanish. The site also contains a direct link to the conference website, which promises live webcasting of different proceedings as they take place on March 29, 30, and 31st 2004.
