INT/Annual payment to the United nations Environment Programme (UNEP)


The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment. UNEP’s work encompasses assessing global, regional and national environmental conditions and trends, developing international and national environmental instruments and strengthening institutions for the wise management of the environment. UNEP supports the implementation of Finland’s development policy, in particular the priority area IV related to promoting climate sustainability, access to sustainable energy and energy efficiency as well as good environmental governance. Finland’s main goals in relation to UNEP are strengthening UNEP’s role as the leading environmental authority and increasing UNEP’s efficiency and results orientation. Annual payment of 1 million euros is proposed for the UNEP's Environment Fund in 2017, to be used for funding UNEP's activities according to the work programme.
