Entitled “Gaps in International Environmental Law and Environment-Related Instruments: Towards A Global Pact for the Environment” (Document A/73/419), the report provides an overview of international environmental law and environment-related instruments, including the governance structure and implementation of international environmental law. It reveals gaps and deficiencies at multiple levels.

The gap analysis report is a major milestone in the Global Pact for the Environment process that formally started in May 2018 when the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution setting in motion a process to discuss and potentially reach agreement on a new international environmental law instrument.

The first substantive session on the Global Pact will be held at UNE headquarters in Nairobi 14-18 January 2019.
