UNEP was invited to meet with the European Environment Council of Ministers, held today in Brussels. This was an opportunity to share UNEP’s work on decarbonisation and the green economy in particular.
It is especially timely to work closely with the EU now as we look towards Rio+20 in June 2012. Both institutions are showing their clear intent to make all the preparations necessary to get the best result from the Rio conference.
Europe has consistently shown a commitment to environmental issues & UNEP is eager to continue this important partnership.
