Briefing: Priorities for the draft UNEA-3 resolution ‘Pollution prevention and control in areas affected by terrorist operations and armed conflicts’

UNEA-3’s focus on pollution is a valuable opportunity to draw attention to this cross-cutting issue, to address the conduct of contemporary conflicts, and to consider whether the mechanisms through which the UN system currently responds to these serious threats to the health and livelihoods of civilian populations is adequate for the task. This briefing for governments on the draft UNEA-3 resolution ‘Pollution prevention and control in areas affected by terrorist operations and armed conflicts’, tabled by Iraq, is intended to highlight key themes that should be protected or enhanced by delegations during negotiations.
