About DEWA

Working through five sections at headquarters in Nairobi and six regional offices, the Division of Early Warning and Assessment (DEWA) provides environmental data and information, and helps increase the capacity of governments to use environmental information for decision-making and planning for sustainable human development.

 

DEWA-West Asia regional programme is hosted at the UNEP Regional Office for West Asia (UNEP-ROWA), in Manama, Bahrain. It's mission is to improve access to meaningful environmental data and information, and increase capacity in West Asia to use environmental information for decision-making and action.

In implementing the mission, DEWA-West Asia focuses on the following focus areas:

 

Strengthening the scientific basis for decision-making by undertaking and supporting national, sub-regional and regional institutions in carrying out integrated environmental assessments and state of environment reporting.

 

Facilitating access to environmental data and information, and supporting indicator development and networking.

 

Early warning of emerging threats: timely identification and vulnerability assessment of emerging environmental threats.

 

Building and strengthening capacity at the regional and national levels on integrated environmental assessment, early warning and information systems.
