Environment and Energy

Eritrea is vulnerable to droughts, floods, increased variability in rainfall patterns and/or reduced precipitation, soil erosion, desertification and land degradation. UNDP works with the Government in addressing environmental challenges and meeting its obligations under the Conventions on Biological Diversity, the Convention to Combat Desertification, and the UN Convention on Climate Change.
