How can we become members of the UNEP Environmental Assembly??? I was in touch with Mr. Naysan Sahba this summer requesting to be a Climate Ambassador but was told this program was non-existent. Can you please let me know how to become member of the Assembly. We would like to have some type of UNEP credential to promote and advocate for Environmental causes. Please let me know or lead me to the proper person to inquire. Thank you.

Dear Maria,

Thanks for your question. As you know, the involvement and inclusion of civil society and stakeholders at UNEP is paramount to delivery UNEPs programme of work and broader environmental governance. As such, there is a there is dedicated Major Groups and Stakeholders Branch at UNEP who are responsible for strengthening cooperation with organizations such as Better World, and increasing transparency and their participation in intergovernmental decision making process, including UNEA.
Major Groups and Stakeholders can get directly involved with UNEP by applying for Accreditation to the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) of UNEP, which grants them observer status to UNEA.

For more information on the modalities for Stakeholders Engagement in UNEP and/or specific details on UNEA accreditation please visit http://www.unep.org/civil-society/UNEAUNEPAccreditation/tabid/52182/Default.aspx

Kind regards,
Jason
