Environment Outlook for the Arab Region (EOAR)

Knowledge Bases
GEO-4 Launch

On 25 October 2007, in over 40 cities around the world, UNEP launched its fourth Global Environmental Outlook (GEO-4) - the most comprehensive GEO process to date. The result of five years of intensive consultation and preparation with stakeholders from all regions of the world, the report was designed to ensure synergy between science and policy, while maintaining its scientific credibility and making it responsive to policy needs and objectives. The launch in 2007 of the GEO-4 report coincides with the 20th anniversary of the launch of the report of the World Commission on Environment and Development, Our Common Future (Brundtland Report). GEO-4 uses it as a reference to assess progress in addressing key environment and development issues. GEO-4 highlights the vital role of the environment in development and, more importantly, for human well-being.
