UN Environment's Brussels Office

Established in April 2001, UN Environment’s Brussels Office works closely with the EU institutions to increase policy dialogue and build strategic partnerships that fulfill the shared goals of UN Environment and the EU. Since 22 April 2014, the office has been headed by Ulf Björnholm Ottosson.

Partnership with EU institutions

UN Environment has a strong partnership with the EU institutions focused on policy dialogue and programmatic cooperation. In 2004 it signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the European Commission, and a joint statement in 2011. In 2014 UN Environment and the European Commission have signed a renewed MoU, to which an Annex was added in 2015 spelling out a range of concrete work areas to be implemented jointly through to 2020.

UN Environment works closely with the European Parliament and the European Economic and Social Committee and has memorandum of understandings with the Committee of the Regions, the Joint Research Centre, and the European Environmental Agency.

Engaging major groups & stakeholders

UN Environment is pleased to work with a number of major groups & stakeholders (MGS) active on environment for development in Brussels, both outside and inside the environment and development sectors.
