Ethics of the Environment
Through joint efforts carried out with UNESCO Sectors and relevant international bodies, UNESCO will address a number of thematic areas - such as the development of a programme in the Ethics of the Environment - with a view to playing an advisory and standard-setting role for the benefit of Member States.
