The High-Level Segment of the fourth session of the UN Environment Assembly will focus on innovative solutions for environmental challenges and Sustainable Consumption and Production guided by the Executive Director’s Report on the theme. This two-day session will bring together various Heads of State, Ministers and Heads of Delegations to provide national statements addressing best practices, policies, financing, technologies, partnerships and multistakeholder processes in support of the overarching theme. As already recognized in the second and third sessions of the UN Environment Assembly, there is a need for transformative change to support Agenda 2030 and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. There is a need for strong commitment and collaborative effort by global political leaders to solve key environmental issues and accelerate sustainable development.
