Suwon, Republic of Korea, 7 October 2021 - Environment Ministers and senior officials from 32 countries in the Asia Pacific region have agreed to step up actions and place nature at the core of solutions to stem the tide of pollution, protect seas and biodiversity, and transition to a carbon-neutral sustainable development path. 

The Ministers reaffirmed this commitment at the 4th Forum of Ministers and Environment Authorities of Asia Pacific held in Suwon, Republic of Korea on 6-7 October 2021. The Forum serves as a platform for the Member States and other stakeholders to contribute regional perspectives to the resumed fifth session of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA-5.2) and to the Special Session of the United Nations Environment Assembly to mark the 50th anniversary of UNEP, both taking place in 2022.
