The Nexus Dialogues

The EMG Nexus Dialogues bring together experts from diverse institutions and disciplines to explore emerging, persistent, and systemic cross-cutting issues. These forums allow participants to discuss the thematic and institutional interlinkages between environmental issues, frameworks, and agendas, in the context of the wider Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

These Dialogues deliver coherent requirements and collaborative opportunities for UN agencies to support implementation of the environmental dimension of the 2030 Agenda – occasionally leading to the launch of formal EMG processes for promoting coordination and cooperation within the UN system. Ultimately, the Dialogues may trigger UN agencies to establish multi-stakeholder partnerships to strengthen policy coherence and integrated policy development in support of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs. Most Dialogues are open to observers.
