Our Planet

  • Discontinued

UNEP’s quarterly magazine Our Planet features authoritative articles on the theme of environment and development by world scientific and political leaders. Each issue of Our Planet concentrates on one specific theme, tying into international conferences, meetings (the Commission on Sustainable Development), events (World Environment Day), or dealing with issues of our time (Water or Climate Change). Our Planet reports on international developments and action. It reviews current thinking, suggests solutions, and debates the key issues of environmentally sustainable development.


A formidable effort is needed

Environmental crime does not only hurt animals or forests. It's dangerous for humans too. Many forms of environmental crime are serious, organized and transnational, weakening the very fibre of our societies. Not only is it the world's fourth largest illegal economy, it is also growing many times faster than the legal one. Many forms of environmental crime are profit driven, no-risk, and contribute to financing terror networks, war and armed conflicts. Let's be straight: we are talking about a global security challenge.
