OMPE ahead of UN and UNEP
In yellow, the points raised by UNEP that have already been included in the themes managed by the OMPE.
This article proves in large part that the objectives sought by the OMPE at the global level are in keeping with the reality and the present and future needs of our planet. Indeed, UNEP (UN Environment Part) has created a body (ANUE) that seems to be trying to build a ‘list of major environmental themes’ as has already been done by the OMPE.
The United Nations probably possesses the largest database of figures on world data which corroborates the list of the OMPE which was made simply by common sense and the rapid study of several simple facts.
Once this list has been completed, this body will issue appeals to member states for consideration (actions). The speed of these institutions is absolutely out of step with the urgency of the situation at the global level. Faced with the slowness of these bodies and these Organizations, it is clear that the OMPE will soon outstrip these institutions !
What will be the attitude of the UN and UNEP when they learn of the existence of the OMPE ?
Attempted destruction ? Of copying ? Media casting ?
In fact, we do not care because it is our role to go fast, the environment does not wait!

The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) estimates the annual number of deaths due to pollution to be 12.6 million, and calls on states and the international community to take more effective action, stressing that pollution of air remains the leading cause of death.
In its latest report on the year 2012, published at the second session of the UN Environment Assembly (Anue-2), which began its work at the UN headquarters on Monday Nairobi, the UNDP says that in the year to which it refers, more than 12 million people worldwide have died because of the degradation of their environment.
In this context, he cites the effects of air and water pollution, chemicals applied to nature, increasingly numerous micro-waste plastics, and diseases caused by the proliferation of certain insects → Mosquitoes of course !
According to the report, more than a quarter of the deaths of children under five are caused by environmental artificial alterations→ owed by the man !
“By degrading our planet’s infrastructure and increasing our pollution footprint, we are increasing the human costs of our activities and jeopardizing the well-being of human beings,” explains UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner in a commentary accompanying the publication Of this report, adding that “by multiplying exposures to chemicals, whether men or natural resources, we have compromised all our supports of existence.
The report notes that the number of deaths due to environmental degradation is particularly high in Southeast Asia and the western Pacific region, as well as in the southern Sahel region of Africa.
Eastern Mediterranean and European countries are also affected by the long-term effects of many pollutions.
The only air pollution in 2012 caused the premature death of 7 million people, whether it be external pollution or domestic pollution, the study said. Mainly caused by household sprays, with the first victims being women and children.
In addition, for the reference year of the study, 107,000 deaths due to asbestos residues and 654,000 deaths due to lead pollution have been added , despite the gradual elimination of the presence of asbestos. Metal in fuels, says the same source.
UNEP, which has only a consultative and advisory role, has thus appealed to the UN member states to take “rapidly” measures to face this problem.
The second UN Assembly on the Environment opened Monday at the UN headquarters in Nairobi, attended by high-ranking officials and more than 1,300 delegations, including Morocco.
Initiated under the theme “Achieving the environmental dimension of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development”, Anue-2 will have to come up with resolutions and a global call to action to tackle the crucial environmental challenges facing the world Today is confronted.
Some 3,000 participants, to announce their commitments and launch new initiatives on climate change, green jobs and clean air, will discuss five days (23-27 May) a number of issues, including Air pollution, synergies between health, agriculture and the environment, prevention of spills and collection of illegal waste, illegal trade in wildlife, in addition to UNEP’s participation in achieving sustainable development objectives Of the UN (ODD).
“The world must seize this opportunity since the adoption of the 2030 Sustainable Development Program and the Paris Climate Agreement to examine and accelerate progress towards a better and greener future for all,” said The Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Program.
All UN member states, observer states and key stakeholders are represented in this newly created body, following measures agreed at the Rio + 20 Summit in Brazil in June 2012 Strengthen the role of UNEP.
The first UN Assembly on the Environment was held in June 2014 in Nairobi, it is recalled.
