Keeping the environment under review

To achieve the environment dimension of sustainable development, the Environment Under Review subprogramme aims to empower governments and stakeholder action by informing decision making with quality information and strengthening the science-policy interface through:

  • Regular, authoritative integrated assessments of the global environment, notably the Global Environment Outlook series
  • Facilitating data sharing and open access to up-to-date quality environmental information (see UNEP Live)
  • Assisting countries in developing capacity in indicator-based national reporting, especially on sustainable development goals and targets
  • Engaging relevant stakeholders and communities in keeping the global environment under review
