Environmental Emergencies Forum
In 2015 AGEE has become the Environmental Emergencies Forum (EEF), an open platform organised as a conference to raise awareness, advocate for action, and create partnerships across stakeholder groups. The previous Steering Committee has been replaced by a smaller, more active Strategic Advisory Group on Environmental Emergencies (SAGEE).
EEF brings together key government, industry, academic, and non-governmental representatives from around the world to improve prevention, preparedness, response and overall resilience to Environmental Emergencies. Participants include: representatives of UN member states, UN agencies and programmes, regional organizations, humanitarian actors, disaster response authorities, academia and research facilities, private sector, industry groups and donors involved in the field of environmental emergency preparedness and response
