Environment and Energy

UNDP supports national efforts to protect globally significant biodiversity and address the threats of global warming and ozone depletion. It promotes the management of wetlands, mountain agro-biodiversity, and rangeland ecosystems. UNDP supports improved energy efficiency in heat and water supply systems, and increased use of renewable energy sources.

Through the Small Grants Programme, which is supported by the Global Environment Facility, it provides funding to civil society for projects to protect the environment. Through outreach efforts, it informs citizens that their social and economic well-being depends on the wise use of environmental resources.
