Cross-cutting Capacity Development Factsheet

10 August 2017

Despite population growth, increased urbanization, and accelerating climate change, we can reverse the damage that human activity has caused to our environment. With funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), UN Environment has established a high-impact portfolio of cross-cutting capacity development projects. Our aim is to build the capacity of countries to meet global environmental objectives and to ensure that the environment is a key consideration in decision-making in all efforts to achieve sustainable development.
