The sixth session of the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA-6), which concluded last week in Nairobi, Kenya, marked a leap in the journey toward united global environmental governance.

Under the banner of addressing the triple planetary crisis—climate change, nature loss, and pollution—UNEA-6 brought together over 5,600 participants from 190 countries.

This assembly, held at the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) headquarters, was not just a meeting; it was a chance to the global community’s resolve to forge effective, inclusive, and sustainable solutions to the most pressing environmental challenges of our time.
