Activity summary:

As a result of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm in 1972, UNEP came into operation by January 1973, first in Geneva and then in Nairobi, Kenya where the main office is now located. The regional office in Geneva covers both East and West Europe and has the objective of promoting UNEP’s programme, stimulate support and raise funds, as well as awaken environmental awareness among the public through the media.
