The videos are the product of a series of strategic dialogues that aim to gather civil society, international organizations, government and academy to discuss the linkages between climate change and the integration of the environmental dimension on the international 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. The United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system, and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment. Our mission is to provide leadership and encourage partnership in caring for the environment by inspiring, informing, and enabling nations and peoples to improve their quality of life without compromising that of future generations.
