Environment Management Group

The Environment Management Group (EMG) is a forum for UN agencies and MEA secretariats established under the chairmanship of the UNEP Executive Director as a mechanism for enhancing interagency cooperation in the field of environment and human settlements.

The first meeting of the EMG in January 2001 established an Issue Management Group (IMG) to deal with harmonization of environmental reporting, with a focus on biodiversity-related conventions. UNEP was asked to serve as the task manager.

The EMG's Issue Management Group (IMG) on biodiversity prepared a UN system-wide contribution to the achievement of the biodiversity agenda. This report, Advancing the biodiversity agenda, was launched at the 10th Conference of the Parties (CoP) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and can be downloaded below. Since, the IMG has continued its work and mapped and mobilised the contribution of UN agencies and conventions to the achievement of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020
