Major Groups and Stakeholders Opening Statement UNEA-2

United Nations Environment Programme (23/05/2016)

We are strongly committed to an ambitious and effective UNEA. The Global Major Groups and Stakeholders Forum is an essential part of the UNEA process. A longer version of this statement including the issues and outcomes of our discussion will be posted on the UNEA portal. We also invite Member States to review the compilation of statements and recommendations by Major Groups and Stakeholders for consideration by UNEA-2, that contains the results of the Regional Consultation Meetings (UNEP/EA.2/INF/7).
