The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is working around the world to respond to natural disasters, industrial accidents, and human-induced crises. In the past two decades, UNEP, through its Resilience to Disasters and Conflicts Global Support Branch, has supported dozens of crisis-affected countries and territories, including Afghanistan, Haiti, Iraq and Sierra Leone.

UNEP provides innovative and efficient environmental solutions that help countries respond to crises and prepare for future emergencies. UNEP also works to minimize the harmful effects of environmental degradation on human well-being.

The Resilience to Disasters and Conflicts Global Support Branch has responded to crisis situations in more than 40 countries since 1999, delivering high-quality environmental expertise to national governments and partners in the UN family. The Branch conducts field-based assessments, works to reduce the risk of disaster, and promotes environmental cooperation for peacebuilding, among other activities.
