Supporting the 2030 Agenda

UN Environment is uniquely positioned to help countries establish and strengthen policy, legal and institutional measures, to achieve the Sustainable Development and other global environmental goals. We provide governments with guidance, expertise and tools on environmental laws, policy and regulation, as well as assist them to meet their environmental commitments to people and planet.

In order to achieve the internationally agreed environmental goals and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda:

  • We enable institutions to better address the environmental dimension of the Sustainable Development Goals.
  • We support the development of national policies that promote poverty eradication and environmental sustainability.
  • We provide technical support to promote public and private investments that support poverty eradication and environmental sustainability.
  • We provide technical assistance to convey UN Environment Assembly contributions to the High Level Political Forum in support of its function in the follow-up to and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
