The third meeting of the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA 3), will be held, on an exceptional basis, from 4-6 December 2017, with the high-level segment taking place on 5-6 December, and the Open Ended Committee of Permanent Representatives (OECPR) from 29 November to 1 December.
UNEA-3 will consider the overarching theme of pollution. Outcomes are expected to include: a political declaration on pollution, linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); resolutions and decisions adopted by Member States to address specific dimensions of pollution; voluntary commitments by governments, private sector entities and civil society organizations to clean up the planet; and the Clean Planet Pledge, a collection of individual commitments to take personal action to end pollution in all its forms.
In addition to the OECPR, UNEA-3 will be preceded by the following meetings: 27-28 November, Global Major Groups and Stakeholders Forum; 29 November – 1 December, Committee of Permanent Representatives; 2-3 December, Science Policy Forum; and 4-6 December 2017, Sustainable Innovation Expo.
