The UNEP Addis Ababa liaison office (UNEP AALO) was created in July 2001 as part of the Regional Office for Africa (ROA) with the mandate of representing UNEP to the African Union Commission (AUC), the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), and the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. As UNEP representative in Ethiopia it serves as the focal point for UNEP's engagement in UN Country Team (UNCT) processes in the country.
The office also facilitates programmatic collaboration/partnership and support to the African Diplomatic Corps in Ethiopia. It ensures UNEP involvement in the Inter-agency collaboration in support of the AU-NEPAD through the Regional Coordination Mechanism (RCM).
