Africa



ROA' s major function is to coordinate UNEP's programme of work in the region. ROA acts as the link between the various units and centres of UNEP and the countries in the region, and promotes collaboration and partnerships with organizations active in sustainable development in Africa.

Located at UNEP headquarters in Nairobi, ROA provides a wide range of advisory services using either UNEP staff or consultants through an umbrella project known as Regional Advisory Services (RAS). RAS advises on environmental machinery and technical requirements, reviews project proposals, and recommends action by governments and other organizations.

ROA covers all 53 countries of the continent and it plays a key role in ensuring that environmental considerations are the engine driving Africa along the road to recovery, stability and sustainable development. The office closely collaborates with many partners to put Africa on the global map where critical environmental issues are discussed and addressed.
