The launch of the Global Waste Management Outlook 2024 and the sixth session of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA-6)
The sixth session of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA-6) will take place from 26 February to 1 March, 2024 at the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.
As the world’s highest decision-making body on the environment, UNEA aims to help restore harmony between humanity and nature, improving the lives of the world’s most vulnerable people.
UNEA-6 will focus on how multilateralism can help tackle the triple planetary crisis of climate change, nature and biodiversity loss, and pollution and waste. Backed by strong science, political resolve and engagement with society, the Assembly will be an opportunity for world governments, civil society groups, the scientific community and the private sector to shape the global environmental policy.
A special event during UNEA-6 is the launch of the “Global Waste Management Outlook (GWMO) 2024 – Beyond an age of waste: Turning rubbish into a resource”, which offers a lucid analysis of municipal waste generation and management and explores three possible scenarios: Waste Management as Usual, Waste Under Control, and a Circular Economy. ISWA worked closely with UNEP as an active contributor in producing the GWMO 2024. We are proud to present the findings and insights of the report during UNEA-6.
The Press Event of the launch will be livestreamed at 14:30-15:15 on Wednesday 28 February 2024 from the UNEP HQ in Nairobi, Kenya.
