The GLOBE Program and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) share a common commitment to the environment, capacity building, and cultural understanding. NASA and UNEP announced an agreement to work together on the promotion and implementation of GLOBE and UNEP activities in August 2019. 

Through this partnership, GLOBE and UNEP will cooperate on environmental education and training, citizen science, and the collection and distribution of environmental data. They will also work together to increase awareness of, and promote the use of, GLOBE data by the international science community by leveraging the UNEP’s Global Resource Information Database (GRID) Centers and publications, with a goal of encouraging participation of environmental researchers in The GLOBE Program. GLOBE and UNEP will share education and training resources for distribution to their networks and promote closer collaboration of UNEP Regional Offices with GLOBE countries and Regional Coordination Offices in their regions.
