Theme for the 2021 UN Environment Assembly

Call for inputs by President of the fifth UN Environment Assembly, H.E. Mr. Ola Elvestuen to Member States and Accredited Major Groups and Stakeholders

"We agreed that the Assembly should advance the global environmental agenda, building upon the outcomes of previous Assembly meetings and as part of a broader engagement to address global environmental challenges. There was also broad support to ensure an action-oriented Assembly that all member states feel ownership of, and which ensures the active engagement and participation of all interested stakeholders.

A roadmap was agreed at the meeting, which outlines the key meetings and milestones on the way to the fifth Assembly. Importantly, the meeting also agreed to set in motion a wide consultation process to define a theme for the next Assembly, with the aim to ensure broad support for a politically relevant and focused theme that can pave the way for concrete and action-oriented outcomes that will give momentum to our actions to tum the tide on current trajectories."
