GEO-6 Assessment for Asia and the Pacific


The sixth Global Environment Outlook (GEO-6) Regional Assessment for Asia and the Pacific paints a comprehensive picture of the environmental factors contributing to human health and well-being at the regional level.

This assessment provides an objective evaluation and analysis designed to support environmental decision making.

The regional assessment is structured in four main chapters that:

  • reviews the regional priorities established at the REIN conference and explain why each priority is of importance to the region;
  • establishes the state of the region’s environment for six key themes, air, land, biota, freshwater, coasts and oceans, and wastes, and analyses the key trends for each;
  • assesses policy responses to these environmental issues;
  • reviews the main trends that will affect the region’s environment in the future and analyses the action needed for it to achieve a more sustainable future.
