Launch of GEO-6 Regional Assessments

Described as “the most authoritative study that UNEP has ever published on the state of the global environment,” the sixth Global Environment Outlook (GEO-6) of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) includes six regional reports that assess environmental issues in the Pan-European region, North America, Asia and the Pacific, West Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Africa. The regional reports will be launched during the first-ever High-level Global Science-Policy Forum hosted by UNEP, that takes place ahead of the second UN Environment Assembly (UNEA-2) and will feed into the decision-making process of the Assembly.
