Gender equality is only one aspect of UN Reform. In this document, WEDO outlines its recommendations on environment in the UN Reform process.

Environmental sustainability should be a central component of the UN’s development work, but the reality is that environment and development are often tackled separately. The concept of sustainable development was introduced to bring together environment, social, and economic issues. The UN should continue in its efforts to interlace these disparate elements while ensuring that the environmental sphere is independently strengthened.
