For People and Planet

UNEP’s Medium-Term Strategy for 2022—2025, and the programme and work and budget for 2022–2023, focus on responding to three planetary crises - climate change, biodiversity and nature loss, pollution and waste. Tackling these challenges to achieve climate stability, living in harmony with nature and moving towards a pollution-free planet will require a recalibration of our economies and societies towards more sustainable and equitable

models. The Medium-Term Strategy outlines a set of transformative shifts that target the drivers of climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution, and looks at their impact. It maps out the actions needed to reshape our consumption and production patterns

towards sustainability, framing UNEP’s contribution in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Decade of Action to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals and beyond. It does so while respecting synergies with the Multilateral

Environmental Agreements and in line with their relevant objectives, goals and principles, without prejudice to the outcome of future negotiations.

The Medium-Term Strategy will also guide the support provided by UNEP in a manner consistent with other internationally agreed frameworks. It will leverage the United Nations development system reform to engage the wider United Nations system in

stronger, more coordinated and mutually supportive environmental action. The programme of work (UNEP/EA.5/3/Add.1) sets out the UNEP’s results framework for the biennium 2022–2023, focused on the three strategic objectives outlined in the MediumTerm Strategy
