NGO Major group Statement

United Nations Environment Programme (2017-12-06)

On this last day we would like to give you our thoughts on how this UNEA3 went. And we want to be honest with you, to express our concerns about the direction UNEA is going. We have a strong feeling that governments are losing hope in finding the right solution in the mandate they have in establishing strong policies, effective financial instruments, proper regulations and legal frameworks. More and more we see that governments and UN institutions, give their mandate away to the bigger corporations so they can develop their own rules of the game. At the leadership dialogues, there were no seats for Major Groups, except for some banks and corporations.
