United Nations Environmental Programme: Taking Measures Concerning Climate Change

Since 1972, United Nations Environment Programme has been the main UN agency for environmental issues, covering a wide range of problems concerning the protection of our environment including development of international environmental customs, promoting research and information, helping governments on how to implement green governance and collaboration with regional institutions and NGOs. United Nations Environment Programme also offers informative reports and policy advice to governments on currently relevant environmental problems such as air pollution and water route contamination, which typically affect multiple countries at the same time.
