The United Nations Environment Assembly is the world’s highest-level decision-making body on the environment. It addresses the critical environmental challenges facing the world today. Understanding these challenges and preserving and rehabilitating our environment is at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Under the overall theme Innovative solutions for environmental challenges and sustainable consumption and production, the 2019 UN Environment Assembly will address the following three focus areas: 

(a) environmental challenges related to poverty and natural resources management, including sustainable food systems, food security and halting biodiversity loss; 

(b) life-cycle approaches to resource efficiency, energy, chemicals and waste management; and

(c) innovative sustainable business development at a time of rapid technological change.
