A thematic guide through the process leading to UNEA 5
The main title for the fifth UN Environment Assembly, scheduled to take place in February 2021, is “Strengthening Actions for Nature to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals”. How is this to be understood, and which sub-themes are of importance to the member states of the UN Environment Assembly?
The Bureau of UNEA 5 working with the Committee of Permanent Representatives, the CPR in Nairobi and UNEP’s secretariat have been hard at work on these issues resulting in a growing number of documents and identified themes. Stakeholder Forum for a Sustainable Future presents here a synthesized guide through these themes and documents.
The guide is available in four languages (Russian version will be uploaded soon):
- Strengthening Actions for Nature to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. A guide for Major Groups and relevant Stakeholders to help their engagement towards UNEA 5
- Renforcer les actions pour la nature pour atteindre les Objectifs de Développement Durable Un guide à l’intention des Principaux Groups et des Parties prenantes concernées pour les aider à s’engager envers l’UNEA 5
- Fortalecer Acciones para la Naturaleza y lograr los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible. Una guía para apoyar a los Grupos Principales y Actores Relevantes
