The 6th Global Environment Outlook was presented at the 4th UN Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya.

The 4th United Nations Environment Assembly took place in Nairobi, Kenya from the 11th to the 15th March 2019. The focus themes addressed ranged from tackling the environmental challenges related to poverty and natural resources management, including sustainable food systems, food security and halting biodiversity loss, to introducing life-cycle approaches to resource efficiency, energy, chemicals and waste management, and ensuring sustainable business development at a time of rapid technological change. In addition, the 6th Global Environment Outlook (GEO) was presented. Produced by 250 scientists and experts from more than 70 countries, the GEO is the most comprehensive report on the global environment. It shows that the overall environmental situation is deteriorating globally and the window for action is closing.

The report, entitled “Healthy Planet, Healthy People”, takes stock of global environmental policy and identifies air pollution, loss of biodiversity, excessive pressure on natural resources and the pollution of ecosystems, especially through chemicals, as particularly critical areas requiring increased efforts.
