Le DEWA/GRID-Genève fait partie du groupe global de centres d'information du PNUE, connus sous le nom de réseau "Global Resource Information Database" (GRID). Les GRIDs-Genève et Nairobi ont été les premiers centres à être lancés en 1985. Les centres GRID facilitent non seulement l'accès aux données et à l'information environnementales mais en produisent également pour les prises de décisions et la mise en place de politiques; ils soutiennent la révision continue par le PNUE de l'état de l'environnement ainsi que des tendances; et ils fournissent des pré-alertes sur les problèmes et les menaces environnementales émergentes.      Plus d'info...

Mainstreaming biodiversity and ecosystem services in Eastern Europe and Caucasus - Final workshops

Within the frame of the The project “Mainstreaming biodiversity and ecosystem services in Eastern Europe and Caucasus” funded by the Ministry of Climate and Environment and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway, UN Environment and GRID-Geneva participated to two final workshop in Tbilisi (Georgia) and Chisinau (Moldova), respectively 30 October-1 November 2017 and 13-15 November 2017.

Through the project, cutting edge remote sensing technology called Data Cube (,, is being provided to national experts for helping a continuous monitoring of ecosystems. This is a transfer of capacities project that could be summarized into three principal aims:
- Transfer of know-how on Data Cube technology in the country
- Provide an operational national one-scene footprint Data Cube (on a nominal Landsat orbital track since 1984)
- Training for Data Cube users

The two demonstration Data Cube created during this project can be accessible at and To use these Data Cubes, credential can be requested to Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser. .

GRID-Geneva contribution to the Minamata CoP in Geneva

During a knowledge lab session in the margins of the first Minamata Convention of the Parties, UN Environment joined the Artisanal Gold Council and UNITAR to present an integrated package of tools to support data collection, information management, analysis and reporting linked to the National Action Plans for the artisanal and small scale gold mining sector. UN Environment presented a dedicated application of the geospatial MapX platform that has been developed by GRID-Geneva. MapX features rich analysis and visualisation functionalities such as customised dashboards and story maps. Key indicators to map and monitor include data related to gold production, mercury consumption, occurence of the four worst practices and the presence of vulnerable populations. In this way, MapX can help inform policy making, enable data sharing and monitor the impact of mitigating interventions. The platform is available for global rollout and implementing countries are invited to contact UN Environment for further information:
