4th episode of Asia in Focus

The 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, more commonly referred to as COP27 was held from 6 to 18 November 2022 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. In December 2022, the UN Biodiversity Conference will convene governments from around the world to agree to a new set of goals for nature over the next decade through the Convention on Biological Diversity post-2020 framework process. To further enhance the interlinkage of business, human rights and the environment, UNDP in partnership with the EU, launched a series of webcasts on Business and Human Rights titled “Asia in Focus “ since July 2022. 

To reinforce the environment aspect in business and human rights framework, this campaign is aligned with the timelines of both COP27 and UNCBD  COP15.
