What Comes After Stockholm+50?

June 1, 2022

World leaders will mark half a century since the 1972 Stockholm Conference ... and then depart. What comes next as we face accelerating societal and environmental challenges, including the growing threats posed by climate change, nature and biodiversity loss, and pollution?

Our Earth Negotiations Bulletin team sat down with environmental leaders to unpack some of the options for the way forward and hear why international cooperation, grounded in multilateralism, is now more important than ever.

Watch below to hear from:

  • Achim Steiner, Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
  • Ibrahim Thiaw, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD)
  • Andrea Meza Murillo, Deputy Executive Secretary, UNCCD
  • Donald Kaniaru, 1972 Stockholm Conference delegate for Kenya.
