Countdown to UNEA-2 underway

A wide range of global stakeholders have been having their say on priorities to be addressed ahead of the second session of the UN Environment Assembly that guides UNEP’s work worldwide.


At the 'Parliament of the Environment’, which takes place in UNEP’s headquarters Nairobi on 23-27 May, the UN’s 193 member states will aim for an agreement on clusters of resolutions, including on sustainable production and consumption and the sound management of chemicals.


Briefings and video messages preparing global stakeholders for the event have been held in Geneva, London and New York while videos encouraging them to join have meanwhile been produced across the globe.


In London, civil society took centre stage at a briefing organised by UNEP and longstanding partner Stakeholder Forum, with speakers from the UN, academia, health bodies and the private sector (see next article).


Stakeholder Forum and UNEP also partnered to organise a webinar preparing global stakeholders for the Assembly, with speakers including the Secretary of UNEP’s governing bodies Jorge Laguna-Celis and Alexander Juras, Chief of UNEP’s Major Groups and Stakeholders branch.


The Geneva Environment Network meanwhile on 4 April briefed permanent missions on UNEA-2 after UNEP ROE held a dinner briefing for West Balkan ministers on the assembly and supporting them in forming a common approach to the meeting.


As a result, registrations for the Assembly are rocketing and close to 80% of delegations confirmed to attend so far are of ministerial level.


EU Environment Commissioner Karmenu Vella is furthermore among European personalities to have produced a videos message supporting the meeting.


“We have been making real progress since the last Assembly. The political will to make the better place is clearly there, but the world needs actions, as well as good intentions,” he urged. In order to view his please click here, while those from other personalities can be watched here.
