This strong economic growth has lifted about 1 billion people out of extreme poverty since the turn of the century.
Home to 60 per cent of the world’s total population and 70 per cent of the world’s populous cities, Asia-Pacific continues to experience fast urbanization expansion. However, the region’s resource-intensive growth has come at a high price and poses a significant threat to people’s well-being and the environment.
We work with partners to respond to some of Asia Pacific’s most urgent challenges.
The UNEP Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific is located in Bangkok and works with 41 countries in the region. Work is carried out in partnership with governments, technical agencies, academia, research institutions, and United Nations Country Teams. We also have national offices in Beijing, China, New Delhi, India, and a sub-regional office in Apia, Samoa.
We are present in other countries through national projects including the UN-REDD Programme and the Poverty-Environment Action for SDGs.
We also provide secretariat functions for the following:
