About Regional Assessments

The GEO regional assessments provide detailed analysis of regional environmental challenges as well as key findings and policy messages for each of the 6 UNEP regions. These are important for policy makers working in the regions to provide solid evidence and policy options which will help tackle environmental issues faced in the regions. They are presented here with links to the underlying assessments.
