United Nations Environment Programme
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), founded in 1972, is the leading international body responsible for promoting environmental action. Headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, its mission is to encourage cooperation in preserving the environment and to assist developing countries in creating environmentally sound practices. Some of its focus areas are sustainable agriculture, climate change, natural disaster aversion, waste management, and environmental governance. With the ticking clock of climate change, UNEP is becoming one of the most critical and urgent forces in the world to minimize our carbon footprint and ensure a safe future.
