08.06.2016 | Batumi, Georgia
The Eighth Environment for Europe Ministerial Conference will convene in Batumi, Georgia, from 8-10 June, under the theme ‘Greener, Cleaner, Smarter!’
The Environment for Europe process and its Ministerial Conferences provide a high-level platform for stakeholders to discuss, agree and partner in addressing environmental priorities across the 56 countries of the UN Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) region. The process also aims to help countries of Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia, and South-Eastern Europe to improve their environmental standards.
The Eighth Environment for Europe Ministerial Conference will address two main themes: greening the economy in the pan-European region; and improving air quality for a better environment and human health. A high-level segment on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) will also take place, with a view to assessing progress during the first 10 years of the UNECE ESD Strategy and its future implementation.
The Ministerial Conference is expected to bring together 800 delegates, including representatives from UNECE member states, UN system organizations, other intergovernmental organizations, Regional Environment Centres, non-governmental organizations, the business sector and civil society.
