UNEP is finalising its Medium Term Strategy (MTS) for the period 2022-2025. This comes at a critical time for global environmental action, as we face enormous environmental challenges and collectively battle a global pandemic. The strategy process represents a tremendous opportunity for UNEP to review and strengthen its organizational performance as a way to achieve the transformation change as called for in the 2030 Agenda, including budget priorities and inclusion of stakeholders in the environmental governance.
The MTS summarizes these efforts in 3 thematic programmes: Climate Action, Nature Action, Chemical & Pollution Action.
Those are supported by enabling and foundational programme: Finance & Economic Transformations. Digital Transformations, Environmental Governance, Science & Policy.
While the first consultative draft of the MTS that was made available in June 2020 did not reference youth, after advocacy by Children and Youth Major Group at the June 2020 Bureau meeting of UNEA, the second narrative draft evolved with over six references to youth and a section on major group engagement. Furthermore, in August 2020 UNEP Secretariat organised a consultation session with youth to take more detailed feedback on the strategy. Read summary HERE. We also thank Felix Dodds from the Stakeholders Forum for his guidance in the development of the survey.
