OUR WORK - ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY
MORE ABOUT ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY
Latin America and the Caribbean have one of the greatest endowments of natural capital in the world, with an extraordinary array of goods and services provided by the region's rich plant and wildlife. UNDP works mainly with governments, but also with civil society and private sector partners to maintain and restore countries' natural capital and unlock its full potential to support human development. Our programmes in coordination with sister UN agencies and governmental counterparts combine the work on biodiversity and ecosystems with issues of poverty, governance and crisis prevention.
