United Nations Environmental Program UNEP

released 5 December 2017

Ministerial declaration of the United Nations Environment Assembly at its third session

We the world’s ministers of the environment, believe that every one of us should be able to live in a clean environment. Any threat to our environment is a threat to our health, our society, our ecosystems, our economy, our security, our well-being and our very survival. That threat is already upon us: pollution is cutting short the lives of millions of people every year.
