The world’s top decision-making body on the environment is expected to explore a host of pressing environmental issues, from water shortages to the transition to clean energy.

There are six prominent discussions that are predicted to take centre stage and greatly influence UNEA’s long-term success. These sessions aim to accelerate the global effort to address the triple planetary crisis of climate change, nature and biodiversity loss, and pollution and waste.

“No single country can address the triple planetary crisis on its own,” said Radhika Ochalik, Director of the Governance Affairs Office at the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). “These dialogues are intended to drive the global momentum we need to build a more sustainable planet.”

The six key sessions to look out for:
