Internatonal Ecosystem Mangement Partnership (UNEP-IEMP) is the first UNEP initiative in the South and for the South that focuses on mobilizing science to support the development of sustainable ecosystem management policy in developing countries. With our three programmes, we aim on becoming an international think tank, a technology and knowledge hub, and a centre for capacity building on ecosystem management for developing countries.

The UNEP International Ecosystem Management Partnership was officially launched in 2011 as a joint venture between UNEP and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, supported by the Government of China. UNEP and CAS will collaborate to define the work programme priorities of UNEP-IEMP and the allocation of appropriate resources to effectively address these priorities, and to ensure the practical implementation of activities that deliver significant measurable impact. The work of UNEP-IEMP directly contributes to UNEP’s Ecosystem Management, Climate Change and Environment under Review sub-programmes.
