Moreover, the tech community will be engaged to help develop ways to use new technologies to share information instantly and promote transparency. The side-event is organized by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the United States in collaboration with several international partners, including UNITAR. Through the side-event the EPA aims to engage experts from NGOs, the private sector, and Governments in the development of a public-private partnership to enhance coordination and collaboration for strengthening environmental governance.
