DEWA/GRID-Nairobi is one of UNEP's major centers for data and information management, with a unique, "value-adding" mandate in the handling of national, sub-regional and regional environmental statistics and data, which in turn supports the environment assessment and early warning activities of UNEP and its partners.

Located at UNEP’s Headquarters based in Nairobi, Kenya, GRID-Nairobi occupies an important niche in the global GRID Network. The center also functions as a support provider to the DEWA-Africa Programme in the area of capacity building for African countries using environmental information for decision-making and action.
