Honored to see my UNEP book, The Untold Story of the World’s Leading Environmental Institution: UNEP at Fifty, among the 7 ‘Champions for Nature’ tell us their must-read books by World Economic Forum!
The Untold Story of the World’s Leading Environmental Institution – Maria Ivanova
Inger Andersen, United Nations Under Secretary-General and Executive Director, United Nations Environment Programme
I highly recommend The Untold Story of the World's Leading Environmental Institution by Maria Ivanova. This is a must-read for anyone interested in the genesis and evolution of global environmental governance. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the UN Environment Programme in 2022, this book provides valuable insights into how UNEP – and, indeed, environmental multilateralism – must rise to the challenges of a planet in crisis and lead us towards sustainable development.
