|UNEP GOVERNING COUNCIL|
|The 21st Session
of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Governing Council will be convened on
5-9 February 2001 in Nairobi, Kenya. The high level segment of the Global Ministerial
Environment Forum will take place on 8-9 February.
UNEP has decided to foster the greater involvement of parliamentarians for securing the aims of Agenda 21. With this objective in view, a special meeting of parliamentarians is scheduled for 8 February in order to prepare for the Ministerial Segment.
GLOBE International and UNEP signed a Memorandum of Understanding in November 2000, with the objective of enhancing their cooperation and promoting the role of parliamentarians as key stakeholders in the road to sustainable development. The active involvement of GLOBE members in the 21st Session of the UNEP Governing Council is an integral part of this renewed partnership between GLOBE and UNEP.
