ESCAP in cooperation with UN Environment is organizing the Asia-Pacific Ministerial Summit on the Environment that will take place in Bangkok from 5 to 8 September 2017. At the request of member States, the Ministerial Summit will bring together for the first time two United Nations ministerial-level meetings on the environment, namely the seventh Ministerial Conference on Environment and Development in Asia and the Pacific and the second session of UN Environment’s Forum of Ministers and Environment Authorities of Asia Pacific.

The Ministerial Summit will focus on addressing the linkages between resource efficiency and pollution reduction in Asia and the Pacific, under the theme ‘Towards a resource efficient and pollution free Asia-Pacific’, and provide the opportunity to review implementation of the outcomes of the sixth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Development in Asia and the Pacific held in Astana in 2010, as well provide guidance with respect to the ESCAP programme of work on environment and development for the upcoming years.
