About Us

UN Environment

UN Environment is the leading environmental authority in the world. It establishes the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development in the United Nations system and acts as an authorised defender of the environment.

The mission of UN Environment is to provide leadership and encourage joint work in caring for the environment, inspiring, informing and empowering nations and people to improve their quality of life without compromising the future.

UN Environment works in Latin America and the Caribbean with governments, civil society and the private sector, in order to gain a better understanding of the causes and impacts of climate change on the economy and human well-being.

The organisation strives to strengthen local and national capacities to cope with the impacts of climate change; develop strategies and public policies for integrating climate change into planning for development and investment, and the implementation of pilot projects to catalyse climate change action.
