United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment)

The United Nations Environmental Programme, aims to solve global environmental problems by proposing viable solutions to a variety of issues. UNEP, as it mission statement claims, aims to “[promote] the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the UN system.” UNEP stands as a global leader for sustainability, given its place as an “authoritative advocate” for the world and its resources. UNEP aims to inspire and encourage partnership between nations, which enables citizens of this ever changing world to improve their lifestyle “without compromising that of future generations.” UNEP aims to inform the world about what is happening with the environment. It attempts to increase the efforts that nations throughout the world are doing in order to aid in the multiple problems which are currently being caused by environmental problems: climate change, global warming, increasing sea-level, and others.
