GEO can also guide the use of EO in the implementation of multilateral environmental agreements (MEA).

We applaud the connections and on-going partnerships with bodies managing conventions and MEAs, such as the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, the UN Convention to Combat Desertification, and the Ramsar Convention, among others. 

We encourage efforts to maintain strong relations among GEO membership, including being responsive to Members’ needs and inclusive of Participating Organizations and Associates.

We recommit to advancing the implementation of the Paris Climate Change Agreement, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and the New Urban Agenda. 

We charge GEO with developing an implementation plan to guide progress in executing the Strategy and with undertaking robust resource mobilization efforts to ensure the partnership’s long-term financial sustainability

We support the prioritization of Work Programme activities and resource mobilization efforts towards strategic or transformative programmes as called for in the Post-2025 Strategy

We also welcome the development of new initiatives, such as the Global Ecosystems Atlas and Global Heat Resilience Service, supporting the implementation of MEAs and endeavors like the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework and Early Warnings for All.
