The sixth session of the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA-6) will be held from 26 February to 1 March 2024 at the UN Environment Programme headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. (decision 5/4 of 2 March 2022)

The overall theme for UNEA-6 is “Effective, inclusive and sustainable multilateral actions to tackle climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution.”

The United Nations Environment Assembly is the world’s highest-level decision-making body on the environment. It addresses the critical environmental challenges facing the world today.

The Assembly has a universal membership of all 193 Member States. Through its resolutions and calls to action, the Assembly provides leadership and catalyses intergovernmental action on the environment.

It sets the global environmental agenda, provides overarching policy guidance, and defines policy responses to address emerging environmental challenges. It undertakes policy review, dialogue and the exchange of experiences, sets the strategic guidance on the future direction of UNEP, and fosters partnerships for achieving environmental goals and resource mobilization.


The UNEA-6 meetings will be webcast in all six UN languages through UNWebTV. Related press conferences and events might be webcasted online in English only through other platforms such as UNEP’s YouTube channel.

A live programme and a mobile app will be made available soon to share updates on how to follow the different events.

Full information about the programme of UNEA-6 is available on the UNEA-6 website in our programme page. The UNEA-6 Mobile App can be downloaded on your phone, giving you access to session schedules, announcements, maps, and real-time updates right at your fingertips.
