But the region – which is home to roughly 15 per cent of the world’s population as well as some of its most iconic species – has enormous potential for sustainable growth and environmental conservation.
UN Environment’s Africa Office is located in Nairobi, Kenya. We also have a sub-regional office for West Africa in Côte d'Ivoire, a liaison office in Ethiopia and an office in South Africa.
We work closely with the African Ministerial Conference on the Environment (AMCEN), which was established in 1985 following a conference of African ministers of environment held in Cairo, Egypt.
