Focal Areas

Leveraging environmental expertise for lasting change


UNEP works across all Global Environment Facility focal areas, with project portfolios in Biodiversity, Chemicals & Waste, Climate Change Adaptation, Climate Change Mitigation, Cross-cutting Capacity Development, International Waters and Land Degradation.

Each focal area is supported by our programmes in complementary areas and backed by our team of over 1,000 in-house experts, who work with a worldwide network of partners to build the public momentum and institutional foundations for change, while developing, testing and sharing innovative, data-driven solutions to environmental challenges.

As a science-based organisation with over 50 years’ experience leading the global environmental agenda, UNEP combines cutting-edge environmental research capacity with deep expertise in policy development, institutional strengthening and advocacy, and the unique convening power of the United Nations to design and deliver high-impact projects that enable lasting change.

Our portfolio of over 300 GEF-supported projects includes a range of GEF Global Flagship initiatives, such as:
  • Sustainable Cities Impact Program (UrbanShift)
  • Global Opportunities for Long-term Development of the ASGM Sector (planetGOLD)
  • Implementing Sustainable Low and Non-Chemical Development in SIDS (ISLANDS)
  • Congo Basin Sustainable Landscapes Impact Program
  • Global E-mobility Program
