UNEP: Created in 1972, UNEP, the United Nations Environment Programme, is the highest environmental authority in the United Nations system. The Programme is an “advocate, educator, catalyst and facilitator”, promoting environmental development throughout the world. Thus, the UNEP has various partnerships with other United Nations or international organisations, national governments, NGOs, the private sector as well as civil society. The UNEP is composed of six regional Offices, owns a database on world resources (the Global Resource Information Database, GRID) and the World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC).
