By keeping the environment under review, the UN Environment aims to link science with policy making and foster sustainable development. The ‘Environment under Review’ subprogramme focuses on achieving results in the following areas:

Environmental assessment

We facilitate policymaking based on sound science and environmental information.

Early warning on emerging issues

We identify and analyse emerging environmental issues of global importance.

Information management

We strengthen government capacity to generate, access, analyse, use and communicate environmental information and knowledge.
