In March of 2022, the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA – the “parliament” and governing body for the United Nations Environment Program - UNEP) passed by consensus a Resolution emphasizing the importance of animal welfare to the environment and sustainable development. The resolution requested the UNEP Executive Director to produce a report exploring the links (widely referred to as the Nexus) between Animal Welfare, the Environment, and Sustainable Development. This Nexus Resource document introduces the reader to the nexus complexities and supports the development of the UNEP report.
