On the Road To UNEA 5.2 : Establishing a Science-Policy Panel (SPP) for Chemicals, Waste and Pollution
December 14, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
This session, organized within the framework of the Geneva Environment Network, is part of a series of webinars, co-convened by Albania, Mali, North-Macedonia, Switzerland and Uruguay with the support of UNEP, to inform stakeholders of the key findings from the UNEP Assessment Report and draft resolution, in preparation for discussions expected to take place at the second segment of the fifth session of the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA-5.2).
GAHP Acting Executive Director, Rachael Kupka spoke on a panel of leading experts about the importance of prioritizing pollution research and action on a global scale: a science policy panel.
“If we want the world to take pollution as seriously as it does climate change and biodiversity conservation,” says Kupka, “we truly need an equally important body such as this panel. This would focus public awareness, political will and significant media attention to set targets and translate scientific data into policy.”
