Post-Crisis Environmental Recovery

Following an assessment, UNEP is available to assist national governments to address identified environmental needs and priorities.

Post-crisis environmental recovery programmes, which can last for several years, aim to strengthen the capacity of national and local environmental authorities (for example through law and policy development), rehabilitate ecosystems, mitigate risks and ensure that resources are used sustainably within recovery and development processes.

Where it is necessary and requested, UNEP can establish project offices in country, as is currently the case in Afghanistan and Sudan. UNEP is also implementing environmental recovery programmes in China, Myanmar, Haiti,Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Côte d’Ivoire implemented from UNEP Offices in Kabul and Khartoum
