Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB) is a balanced, timely, and independent reporting service on United Nations environment and development negotiations.

The Earth Negotiations Bulletin team provides daily coverage at sustainable development negotiations and events around the world, documenting global efforts to tackle climate change, biodiversity loss, sustainable land use, safe chemicals management, deep sea mining, and other global challenges. We distribute our free daily reports and summaries at meeting venues as well as by email to our subscribers, increasing transparency, engagement, and accountability in these vital processes. 

With tens of thousands of subscribers—including government ministers and officials, UN delegates, NGOs, the business community, academics, and the media—and an unmatched team of environmental negotiation specialists, Earth Negotiations Bulletin is an essential actor in the world’s journey toward a more just, sustainable planet. ENB does not use generative AI in the production of its reports.

ENB is a project within the International Institute for Sustainable Development. Many of our writers also contribute to IISD’s authoritative SDG Knowledge Hub to track implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
