Welcome to the United Nations Environment Programme magazine for environmentally sustainable development

Our Planet is UNEP’s magazine for environmentally sustainable development.

Each issue of Our Planet concentrates on one specific theme, tying into international conferences (the 10th anniversary of the Basel Convention), meetings (the Commission on Sustainable Development), events (World Environment Day), or dealing with issues of our time (Water or Climate Change).

Our Planet contains articles by leaders of United Nations organizations, national governments, non-governmental organizations, experts, business leaders and opinion formers.
