The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP/UN Environment) was founded as results of the Stockholm Conference on Human Environment in 1972. As leading global environmental authority setting the global environmental agenda and promoting the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system, UN Environment serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment on a global scale.
The partnership between UN Environment and IFSA was only initiated in 2017 and has been growing stronger ever since. Being the leading global environmental authority with several forest-related sub-bodies, such as the UN-REDD Programme and the Global Peatlands Initiative, UN Environment is a key partner for IFSA.
IFSA is an active member of the United Nations Major Group of Children and Youth of UN Environment, and contributing to several initiatives of this official youth constituency.
The major work for the HoSC would be actively taking part in MGCY meetings, event, create scope for IFSA in UNEA (United Nations Environment Assembly, held every year) through this partnership collaborating with UNFF HoSCs and their guidance.
