Lead is a toxic substance, and young children and pregnant women are the most vulnerable to its effects.
Every year, some 600,000 children are intellectually disabled because of their exposure to lead paint,
which is still widely available on the market in developing countries and countries in transition

The Emissions Gap Report 2017: A UN Environment Synthesis Report
United Nations Environment Programme

The eighth UN Environment Emissions Gap Report provides an up-to-date scientific assessment of the global progress towards the emissions reductions required to be on track to meet the long-term goal of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The overall conclusion of the assessment is that government and other stakeholder’s emissions reduction commitments are far from the level of ambition required for an emissions pathway consistent with staying below a 2°C, let alone a 1.5°C, temperature increase.

Building a Sustainable Financial System in the European Union: The Five ‘R’ s of Market and Policy Innovation for the Green Transition
United Nations Environment Programme

This report presents a stock-take of actions under way at the European Union level and in selected Member States to align the rules governing the financial system with environmental sustainability. Looking across the range of innovations across the EU, five broad policy priorities emerge. The central challenge of financing sustainable development in the EU is one of capital reallocation. Enhancing frameworks for risk management, clarifying the core responsibilities of financial institutions and improving reporting and disclosure across these dimensions will be necessary to fully unlock flows of sustainable finance. A growing number of Member States are delivering on individual aspects of these priorities, and others are acting within given asset classes. The debate is now advancing to the system level and the need for a strategic reset, seeking to link previously unconnected initiatives and to enhance the capacity of the financial system to support renewed economic competitiveness and improved sustainability performance. - See more at: http://unepinquiry.org/publication/european-union-report/#sthash.IG0HHF6...
