The Regional Office for Europe (ROE) promotes inter-governmental policy dialogue and regional cooperation, increases national capacity for environmental management and response to emergencies, raises awareness and enhances information exchange, and translates global policies into regional action.

ROE is based in Geneva, Switzerland, with out-posted offices in Brussels, Moscow and Vienna. Liaison is a key function for ROE, which establishes contact points between UNEP and national governments or supra-national entities such as the European Union and the Commonwealth of Independent States.

The European region as defined by the United Nations comprises 53 highly diverse countries and various regional groupings. This variety results in a range of differing environmental problems and capacities for responding. UNEP's regional activities reflect this diversity. ROE carries out several activities in keeping with its mandate, including in the areas of protecting biodiversity, environmental law, environment and security, sustainable consumption and transport, information and outreach.
