Abstract

In order to consistently implement the global environmental agenda and to serve as an authoritative advocate for the global environment, it is necessary to continue to implement the United Nations system-wide environmental strategy and work on reform. It should be noted that any measures aimed at ensuring better coordination between the environmental programs of the UN system should benefit the UN Member States, specialized agencies and other relevant organizations that are making their own efforts to ensure environmental sustainability. This, in turn, will require their active participation in ensuring that the policies of all these organizations are harmonized through coordinated decisions by the relevant intergovernmental parliamentary and governing bodies. The United Nations system-wide strategy on the environment will be effective only if it is supported by the decisions of these intergovernmental bodies and institutions. Despite significant progress, further efforts are needed to ensure better coordination in addressing environmental and related to environment issues, including through the establishment of the United Nations Environment Organization in the form of the specialized agency of the United Nations.
