UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Global Environmental Outlook (GEO-5) Regional Consultations

16-17, 20-21, and 23-24 September 2010 | Bangkok, Thailand; Nairobi, Kenya; and Geneva, Switzerland

UNEPAs part of the preparation for the production of the fifth Global Environmental Outlook (GEO-5), the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) is organizing seven regional consultations taking place in September and October 2010.

The UNEP Global Environmental Outlook is a process of conducting a global Integrated Environmental Assessment to deliver the best available scientific findings to policy makers to help them make informed decisions on how to respond to environmental challenges. The output of this process is a comprehensive report of the world environment containing an assessment of the state and trends of the global environment in relation to internationally agreed goals.

The aim of these seven regional consultations is for stakeholders and the UNEP Secretariat to agree on priority environmental issues and challenges within each region and select internationally agreed goals to address them. The consultations will also address the development of the regional chapters in the GEO-5 report and the GEO-5 process. The principal output will be a final report from each regional consultation containing the outcomes of the meeting, including key recommendations, regional priorities, agreed goals and key target audiences.

The regional consultations are part of the GEO-5 production process and will be held on the following dates:

*2 September 2010, Washington DC, United States of America
*6-7 September 2010, Panama City, Panama
*9 September 2010, Ottawa, Canada
*16-17 September 2010, Bangkok, Thailand
*20-21 September 2010, Nairobi, Kenya
*23-24 September 2010, Geneva, Switzerland
*4-5 October 2010, Bahrain

IISD RS will be providing summary reports of three of the regional consultations in: Bangkok, Thailand on Monday, 20 September; Nairobi, Kenya on Friday, 24 September; and Geneva, Switzerland on Monday, 27 September 2010.
