New Research
Under the theme of ‘Healthy Planet, Healthy People,’ UN Environment’s sixth Global Environment Outlook (GEO-6) presents a comprehensive assessment of the state of the global environment. The report features contributions from more than 250 scientists and experts from over 70 countries. It is complemented by a Summary for Policymakers (available in Arabic, French, Russian, and Spanish), a set of Key Messages, and two infographics: "Add oxygen to the economy. Go Circular" and "Revisiting our food system".
