The UN Environment Assembly (UNEA) is the world’s highest-level decision-making body on environmental action. The Assembly provides environment ministers, stakeholders, and experts from around the world an opportunity to come together to discuss environmental challenges and work on resolutions to advance climate action.
This year’s session, the third UNEA (UNEA-3), will take place from December 4th to December 6th in Nairobi, Kenya, on the theme “Towards a Pollution-free Planet”. The outcomes of the Assembly are expected to include a political declaration on importance of acting against pollution, supported through voluntary commitments to reduce pollution by governments and stakeholders. In addition, member States are expected to consider resolutions on issues ranging from marine debris to lead paint.
UNEA provides a unique platform for dialogue on environmental sustainability and a number of activites will take place before and during the Assembly, offering additional opportunities for high-level engagement and discussion:
