UNDP works closely with a number of our committed partners within the Government as well as Iran’s civil society to support national efforts in sustainably managing the environment and addressing persistent environmental challenges. The crux of our work also addresses global environmental issues of climate change, biodiversity loss, land degradation, challenges faced in management of international water bodies and ozone layer depletion, while at the same time addressing national priorities in environmental conservation. We also support Iran to fulfill its commitments as a party to various global environmental treaties and conventions.
