Bringing the International Community together

UNEP aims to strengthen policy coherence and more coordinated, integrated and streamlined action in the UN system on the environment and the effective delivery of the environmental dimension of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals. UNEP’s work builds on the outcome of the Rio+20 Conference, in particular paragraphs 88 and 89, and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and fosters partnership and collaboration, including through interagency mechanisms, to continuously streamline the way the UN system and other players interact in the complex web of International Environmental Governance.

It does so  by taking  a leadership role in the  formulation of a United Nations system-wide framework of strategies on the environment, aligned with the SDGs; by enhancing cooperation and coordination between UNEP and MEAs Secretariats and institutions; and by promoting strategies and collaboration mechanisms for the coherent delivery of SDGs, with focus on the environmental dimension.
