The UNEA-6 Cities and Regions Summit is an Associated Event to the Sixth United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA-6). This is the 3rd edition of the Summit, whose first occurrence was organised during UNEA-4 in 2019. The Summit brings together mayors and other representatives from cities and regions worldwide to engage in a collaborative dialogue on the pressing issues of climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution.
This 3rd edition of the Summit will contribute to deliberations at the UN Environment Assembly. It will showcase concrete examples of cities and regions supporting their national governments in achieving the SDGs and the MEAs’ goals. This Summit will focus on two key questions regarding the cities and regions’ engagement:
- Strengthening the multi-level governance (MLG) for achieving the SDGs and the MEAs goals
- Funding and financing to accelerate the local climate and environmental actions
The Summit will be organised in two thematic sessions. You are cordially invited to join the summit at the Cities and Regions Summit which will take place on 23 February 2024 at UNEP Headquarters in Nairobi.
