The Forum will bring together approximately 100 practitioners from around the world to showcase innovations in environmental emergency preparedness and response, and to highlight current efforts on integrating environmental risk in humanitarian action. You will meet representatives from governments, UN agencies, industries, academia, aid agencies, and civil society. Participants come from a broad background but share the objective to improve environmental emergency preparedness and response, environmental management, disaster risk reduction and humanitarian action.
Hosted by UN Environment, the Forum will explore the nexus of environmental risk and humanitarian crisis against the backdrop of other trends such as urbanization and industrialization. It will provide a platform for taking action to address the environmental dimensions of emergencies.
