Org. Setting and Reporting
The United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.
The UN Environment - Regional Office for West Asia, established in Manama, Bahrain, is one of the UN Environment’s six regional offices. It coordinates UN Environment’s Programme of Work in West Asia, providing the link between UN Environment’s Divisions and the countries of the region. Hence, UN Environment’s West Asia Office’s main objective is to develop relevant programmes to respond to the needs of the region, with a focus on enabling member states to achieve their visions for a sustainable future in line with the 2030 Agenda.
UN Environment, as the environment arm of the UN system, is mandated to address environmental issues and their management, and as such recognises the critical role of outreach and advocacy through campaigns and other awareness raising and special initiatives. For such initiatives to reach their full potential, the development of strategic partnerships with stakeholders, including governments, the private sector, global, regional and national organisations and civil society actors is essential.
