Global Environment Outlook (GEO6) – Healthy Planet, Healthy People

UNEP’s flagship report, the 2019 edition of the Global Environment Outlook (GEO-6: Healthy Planet, Healthy People) was launched in March 2019 and can be accessed here.

UN Environment’s sixth Global Environment Outlook (GEO-6) calls on decision makers to take immediate action to address pressing environmental issues to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals as well as other Internationally Agreed Environment Goals, such as the Paris Agreement.

GEO-6 builds on the findings of previous GEO reports, including the six regional assessments (2016), and outlines the current state of the environment, illustrates possible future environmental trends and analyses the effectiveness of policies. This flagship report shows how governments can put the world on the path to a truly sustainable future. It emphasizes that urgent and inclusive action is needed by decision makers at all levels to achieve a healthy planet with healthy people.
