  • Segment 3: Facilitating urgent, large scale action to bridge the gap between commitments and action
  • Segment 4: Engaging and Empowering All Relevant Stakeholders: Simplifying Messages for Greater Partnerships
  • Closing Segment

Focusing on the interlinkages and synergies between the different strands of the environmental action tracks, and with reference to the common challenges faced, the event will:

1. Present solutions to common bottlenecks affecting the entire environmental agenda;

2. Highlight best practices and transformative partnerships that break the siloes and build the required cross-cutting technical, skilling and financial capacities that could accelerate implementation on all fronts to the level needed; and,

3. Reinforce the views of a range of stakeholders, including young people.

Environmental threats are crosscutting, multidimensional, and threat multipliers. Given that the drivers and impacts of environmental degradation are interlinked, there is a clear need for a coordinated and integrated global response to these challenges.
