UNEP's Regional Office for North America (RONA), established in Washington, D.C. in October 2000, is one of six regional offices that are part of UNEP’s Division of Regional Cooperation (DRC).

The North American region comprises Canada and the United States of America — two of the three largest countries in the world. RONA monitors and uses the valuable work, scientific knowledge, technologies and other products of the region's government agencies, academic institutions, businesses, environmental think tanks, and advocacy and inter-governmental organizations. RONA works closely with all of these to help bring their technological, financial and intellectual resources to the benefit of the global environment.

RONA’s mission is to promote effective responses to international environmental challenges, and to foster cooperation on environmental issues between North America and the broader international community. To achieve this mission, RONA’s strategy is to promote collaboration between UNEP and all sectors of North American society, including U.S. and Canadian governmental institutions, the private sector and civil society groups.
