Regional Multi-Stakeholder Consultation for Stockholm+50: ‘A healthy planet for the prosperity for all.’
In preparation for Stockholm 50, a series of regional multi-stakeholder consultations will be organized in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and West Asia between April and May 2022.
This year commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 1972 UN Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm, which made the environment a pressing global issue for the first time. This key milestone allows us to reflect on the 50 years of environmental action and set the vision for the next 50 years at the international Stockholm+50 conference.
To prepare for this major international environmental meeting, UNEP, with the support of the Global Opportunities for Sustainable Development Goals (GO4SDGs) initiative, has coordinated a series of high-level consultations. These consultations provide an opportunity to share ideas and actions on how to renew commitments and bring them into action. They also offer a venue to discuss scaling-up regeneration of our ecosystems, reimagining our common future and rebalancing our relationship with nature.
The main objectives of these consultations are:
- To give a voice to and facilitate engagement of as many stakeholders as possible;
- To ensure a bottom-up approach in mapping of key actions needed to safeguard our planet in the 21st century in the context of each country’s and region’s needs, including policies and actions required in those economic sectors most critical for sustainable development;
- To review and assess how the state of our environment can be enhanced to help countries and regions attain the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda, with a particular focus on innovative and enhanced means of implementation as well as building and enhancing human capacities.
