Fonctions et responsabilités

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment. UNEP’s mandate is to coordinate the development of environmental policy consensus by keeping the global environment under review and bringing emerging issues to the attention of governments and the international community for action.

In line with its Medium-Term Strategy (2022-25), UNEP supports governments, regional organizations and UN entities in designing and implementing best-practice policies to address climate impacts, biodiversity loss and pollution. UNEP’s Ecosystems division identifies emerging environmental stressors, and works through UN partners to promote resilience, sustainable governance and management of natural resources and ecosystems in crisis-affected states and regions. The Regional Office for Europe is guided by UNEP’s new delivery model and provides strategic and political engagement at the country level and works closely with the UN Country Teams (UNCT) and the UN Resident Coordinator’s offices (RCO) through the Issue Based Coalitions (IBC) on Sustainable Food Systems and on Environment and Climate change.


The consultant will provide strategic advice on country priorities and opportunities for enhancing sustainable food systems in the Europe and Central Asia (ECA) region and supports the capacity building and high-level political commitment from member states to strengthen sustainable food systems through the Issue-Based Coalition on Sustainable food systems as per UNEP’s new delivery model.

• Output 1: Produce political analysis on food systems and food systems policies in 4 selected target countries (Turkey, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Serbia) and identify entry points from the perspective of UNEP SFS focus areas, key processes and opportunities for enhancing sustainable food systems.

• Output 3: With others in the team, organize a capacity building session/webinar targeted to ECA UN Country Teams on e.g. the implementation of Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework and COP27 agreements.
