UNEP’s mission is to provide leadership and encourage partnership in caring for the environment by inspiringinforming, and enabling nations and peoples to improve their quality of life without compromising that of future generations.

UNEP works on delivering transformational change for people and nature by drilling down on the root causes of the three planetary crises of climate change, nature and biodiversity loss, and pollution and waste. UNEP employs seven interlinked subprogrammes for action: Climate ActionChemicals and Pollutions ActionNature ActionScience PolicyEnvironmental GovernanceFinance and Economic Transformations and Digital Transformations. 

Through its campaigns, particularly World Environment Day, UNEP raises awareness and advocates for effective environmental action.

Headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, UNEP works through its divisions as well as regional, liaison and out-posted offices and a growing network of collaborating centres of excellence.

UNEP works closely with its 193 Member States and representatives from civil society, businesses, and other major groups and stakeholders to address environmental challenges through the UN Environment Assembly, the world’s highest-level decision-making body on the environment.

The organization hosts the secretariats of many critical multilateral environmental agreements and research bodies.

The Executive Director and Senior Management Team lead the implementation of UNEP’s Medium-Term Strategy (MTS). The four-year MTS articulates UNEP’s role in delivering the promises of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) as well as its outcome document, “The Future We Want.”

UNEP supports Member States to ensure that environmental sustainability is reflected in development and investment planning and provides countries with the necessary tools and technologies to protect and restore the environment.

To deliver on its programme, UNEP’s relies on voluntary financial contributions to the programme budget. Ninety-five per cent of this funding is provided voluntarily by funding partners.
