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. This new political platform provided a broader overarching context for the work of UNEP in 2014, with a challenge to provide added value to a growing community of stakeholders with high expectations.

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.
