Briefing on the preparations for the sixth session of the UN Environment Assembly UNEA-6

This online and on site briefing took place on 6 December 2023 in Geneva. It was organized by the Geneva Environment Network and provided an update on the preparations for the sixth session of the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA-6).

UNEA-6 will take place from 26 February to 1 March 2024, in Nairobi, Kenya.

The United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) is the world’s highest-level decision-making body on the environment. This session’s theme “Effective, inclusive and sustainable multilateral actions to tackle climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution” focuses on addressing the interlinkages of these three planetary environmental crises.

At UNEA-6, a series of leadership and multi-stakeholder dialgues and more than 30 official side events and associated events are expected to lay the ground for strengthened global and regional coordinated efforts by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), Member States, and partners.

UNEA-6 will also highlight the importance of cooperation with multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) with a full day (28 February 2024), devoted to the discussion with a view to enhancing its relationship with the MEAs by strengthening convergence of actions and sharing of experiences.

The UNEA-6 will be preceded by the sixth meeting of the Open-ended Committee of Permanent Representatives (OECPR). This preparatory meeting, which will be held on 19 to 23 February 2024, pre-negotiates and deliberates the content and wording of proposed resolutions, declarations and decisions for endorsement and approval by the UNEA-6 Assembly.

The recording of the briefing is available below.
