United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) and the 2030 Agenda

Register for UNEA

The second session of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA-2) will take place from 23 to 27 May 2016 at UNEP headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, under the overarching theme of Delivering on the environmental dimension of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The assembly, the world’s highest-level decision-making body on the environment, will culminate in resolutions and a global call to action to address the critical environmental challenges facing the world today. It will also provide the first global platform for discussing implementation and reviewing progress on the SDGs, particularly their environmental dimensions. To this end, UNEA-2 will contribute to the work of the High-level Political Forum (HLPF), a UN platform that provides political leadership for the SDGs, reviews their implementation, and promotes the integration of the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development.

UNEA also aims to bring in voices from civil society and the private sector, as well as the wider international community. UNEP invites you to participate and share your concerns, experiences, and ideas for the future.
