An Animal Welfare Nexus Resolution for Sustainable Development Adopted in March 2022 at UNEA 5.2

Years of stakeholder collaboration with animal welfare organizations culminated in a monumental achievement at the United Nations in Nairobi, Kenya. For the first time in history, a resolution that exclusively refers to animal welfare was adopted on March 2, 2022.

The Resumed Fifth Session of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA 5.2) adopted the Animal Welfare, Environment and Sustainable Development Nexus Resolution which was sponsored by seven (7) Member States, namely Ghana, Burkina Faso, Senegal, South Sudan, Ethiopia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

The draft resolution was discussed, negotiated, and was agreed upon at a referendum and was passed by Open Ended Committee of Permanent Representatives (OECPR) ahead of UNEA 5.2.
