The Environment and Emergencies Forum (EEF) is a unique opportunity to discuss global policy, share experiences and knowledge, forge new partnerships and agree on key actions related to environmental emergencies. It will consist of three days of interactive dialogue, inspiring sessions and networking opportunities.


The Forum will bring together approximately 100 practitioners from around the world to showcase innovations in environmental emergency preparedness and response, and to highlight current efforts on integrating environmental risk in humanitarian action. You will meet representatives from governments, UN agencies, industries, academia, aid agencies, and civil society. Participants come from a broad background but share the objective to improve environmental emergency preparedness and response, environmental management, disaster risk reduction and humanitarian action.


The 2017 Environment and Emergencies Forum will take place from 26 September to 28 September 2017 at the UN Gigiri compound in Nairobi, Kenya.


Hosted by UN Environment, the Forum will explore the nexus of environmental risk and humanitarian crisis against the backdrop of other trends such as urbanization and industrialization. It will provide a platform for taking action to address the environmental dimensions of emergencies.





Participation in the EEF is free of charge. Participants will have to cover the cost of their transportation and accommodation.
