GEO The Environment Under Review
The Global Environment Outlook (GEO) project is the implementation of UNEP’s mandate to keep the global environment under review. Initiated at the request of the UNEP Governing Council in 1995GEO is both a process and a series of reports, analyzing environmental change, causes, impacts, and policy responses. It provides information for decision-making, supports early warning and builds capacity at the global and sub-global levels. GEO is also a communication process that aims at raising awareness on environmental issues and providing options for action.
