United Nations Environment Programme

UN Environment this year commemorates 45 years of its existence with a track record in leading efforts to protect our environment. Established in December 1972 as a follow up to the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment, UN Environment further strengthened its strategic leadership in 2016, exercising its role as a global authority on the environment. It implemented its Medium Term Strategy and Programme of Work, strengthening its partnership with governments, local authorities, the UN system, the scientific community, business, investors, and civil society. No stakeholder was left behind in the joint effort to address the challenges of sustainability and resilience.

Fund of the United Nations Environment Programme: Financial Report and Audited Financial Statements for the Year Ended 31 December 2015 and Report of the Board of Auditors
United Nations Environment Programme

The Board of Auditors has audited the financial statements and reviewed the operations of the Fund of the United Nations Environment Programme for the financial year ended 31 December 2015. The audit was carried out through the examination of financial transactions and operations at UNEP headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, and Montreal, Canada, for the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol. The present report covers matters that, in the opinion of the Board, should be brought to the attention of the General Assembly and has been discussed with UNEP management, whose views have been reflected in the report. The audit was conducted primarily to enable the Board to form an opinion as to whether the financial statements present fairly the financial position of UNEP as at 31 December 2015 and its financial performance and cash flows for the year then ended, in accordance with the International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS). The audit included a general review of financial systems and internal controls and a test examination of the accounting records and other supporting evidence to the extent that the Board considered necessary to form an opinion on the financial statements. The Board also reviewed UNEP operations in accordance with financial regulation 7.5 of the United Nations, which allows the Board to make observations on the efficiency of the financial procedures, the accounting system, the internal financial controls and, in general, the administration and management of operations. The report also includes a brief commentary on the status of implementation of recommendations from previous years.

2014 marked the evolution of UNEP’s governing body from a 58-member Council to the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) with universal membership (193 countries), demonstrating that the environment is a global concern.

UNEP Programme Performance Report 2013
United Nations Environment Programme

The 2012-2013 biennium completed the implementation of the first Medium-Term Strategy of UNEP for the period 2010-2013. For the first time in the history of the organization, results-based management principles were fully applied throughout the programme cycle, from planning to monitoring and evaluating our implementation. UNEP’s performance against Expected Accomplishments in the Programme of Work for the biennium 2012-2013 shows: - 64 per cent achieved on schedule||- 85 per cent of indicator targets that were achieved were over-exceeded||- 30 per cent partially achieved with work still underway in some cases. Financial (and human)||resources are not always available at the beginning of the biennium as funds are mobilized during the biennium in which results are to be achieved, sometimes affecting the pace of the organization’s delivery and expenditure rates||- 6 per cent not achieved, owing to indicators that were not possible to measure and were substituted with alternative performance measurements.

Fund of the United Nations Environment Programme: Financial Report and Audited Financial Statements for the Biennium Ended 31 December 2013 and Report of the Board of Auditors
United Nations Environment Programme

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is mandated to assist and support Member States to protect the environment by inspiring, informing and giving them the means to improve the living standards of their populations without compromising those of future generations. The Programme’s headquarters is in Nairobi, but it has a global presence of six regional offices and eight country/liaison offices, and collaborative arrangements and secretariat functions in several other countries. It has 1,141 staff members, of whom 445 are based in Nairobi. Total income for the 2012-2013 biennium was $943.4 million, while total expenditure was $751.4 million, resulting in an excess of income over expenditure of $192 million, mainly attributed to $131.7 million received in the fourth quarter of 2013. UNEP also administers and controls 14 multilateral environmental agreements, mainly conventions set up to implement protocols related to the core mandate of the Programme. The income ($214.8 million) and the expenditure ($177.7 million) of the multilateral environmental agreements have been included in the consolidated financial statements of UNEP. The financial statements also include separate statements for the income, expenditure, assets and liabilities of the Trust Fund for the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. The Trust Fund had reported an income of $266.2 million and expenditure of $298.7 million, resulting in a shortfall of income over expenditure of $32.5 million in the current biennium. The shortfall was further increased to $40.2 million after reflecting prior-period adjustments of $7.7 million which, in turn, decreased the reserve balance to $322.5 million as at 31 December 2013. The Board of Auditors has audited the financial statements and reviewed the operations of the Fund of the United Nations Environment Programme for the biennium ended 31 December 2013. The audit was carried out through the examination of financial transactions and operations at UNEP headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.
