UNEP in the Regions: Europe - Environment for Development

United Nations Environment Programme (2005)

UNEP views its role in Europe as being that of a facilitator and supporter of regional and sub-regional cooperation and partnerships, a provider of assessments and early warnings, an advisor on responses to emerging environmental issues, a builder of capacity in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and a provider of outreach, environmental education and public information services. Consistent with this view and with due regard to the changing political landscape of Europe, notably the growing role and influence of the EU both at regional and global levels UNEP's Regional Office for Europe (ROE) in Geneva will firstly continue to support and promote the European inputs to global environmental policies and discussions, including the pan-European preparations for UNEP's Global Ministerial Environment Forum (GMEF), the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
