United Nations Environment Programme

Established in 1972, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has been an unwavering beacon of environmental stewardship, fostering collaboration and driving innovation to safeguard our planet's precious ecosystem and biodiversity. With a mandate to promote the integration of environmental considerations into policies, programs, and projects, UNEP serves as a catalyst for action, inspiring nations, communities, and individuals to embrace sustainable practices and nurture the delicate balance between humanity and nature.

Across continents and cultures, UNEP works tirelessly to address the complex and interconnected environmental challenges facing our world, including climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution, resource depletion, and environmental degradation. The Programme addresses these tribulations with proper measures to diminish the root cause. Through a harmonious blend of scientific research, policy development, capacity-building, and advocacy, UNEP strives to empower nations and communities to forge a path towards a more resilient and sustainable future.

This year's subject embarks on the question of the management of chemical and explosive waste. The threat to the environment refers to hazardous materials that can pose significant risks to human health and the environment if not properly managed. UNEP seeks compliance with regulations and safety protocols as a crucial matter when handling and disposing of such waste.

Topic at OLMUN 2024: Environmental Consequences of Neglected Threats: Updating Guidelines for the Disposal of Chemical and Explosive Waste
