The Fourth session of the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA-4) will take place from 11-15 March 2019, in Nairobi, Kenya, on the theme, ‘Innovative Solutions for Environmental Challenges and Sustainable Consumption and Production’. The proposed concept note for the  Assembly sets out three focus areas for consideration by Member States and Stakeholders. These will be used to develop background documentation and guide ministerial dialogues and outcomes.

The focus areas are:
1. Sustainable food systems, including food security and biodiversity;
2. Life-cycle approaches to resource, energy, chemicals and waste management;
3. Innovative sustainable business development at a time of rapid technological change.
