Dr. Meslmani was one of the lead authors of Chapter 2, working group Atmosphere chapter of UNEP’s fifth Global Environmental Outlook report (GEO 5).
The Fifth Global Environment Outlook (GEO-5) is part of a series of Global Environment Outlook (GEO) products that report on the state, trends and outlooks of the environment and thus inform environmental decision-making while facilitating the interaction between science and policy.
GEO-5 assessed progress and gaps in meeting 90 internationally agreed goals. Significant progress was found for just 4 goals; some progress has been made for 40 and for 32 goals there was very little or no progress. Furthermore, GEO-5 regional policy analysis provides over 90 promising policies and 116 case studies which can help countries speed up meeting our internationally agreed goals.
The GEO-5 Summary for Policy Makers (GEO-5 SPM) is based on the scientific findings of the Global Environmental Outlook-5 report. It was developed by UNEP with the guidance of the GEO-5 High Level Intergovernmental Advisory Panel and with technical inputs from the GEO-5 authors. Governments convened in Gwanju city, Republic of South Korea to negotiate the GEO-5 Summary for Policy Makers and endorsed it on 31 January 2012.
The GEO-5 Assessment report was launched on 6 June 2012 in Brazil.
