Global Environment Outlook 6 (GEO 6)

Report published by the United Nations, in March 2019

Published in time for the Fourth United Nations Environmental Assembly, the United Nations Sixth Global Environment Outlook (2019) invites decision makers to take immediate action to address urgent environmental issues in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals as well as other internationally agreed environmental goals, such as the Paris Agreement. GEO 6 builds on previous GEO Reports, including the six regional assessments (2016), describes the current state of the environment, illustrates possible future environmental trends, and analyzes the effectiveness of policies. The report shows how governments can put the world on track for a truly sustainable future and emphasizes that urgent and inclusive action is needed at all levels to achieve the goal of a healthy planet with healthy people.
