The UNEP-DHI Partnership is a United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) centre of expertise dedicated to improving the management, development and use of freshwater resources from the local to the global level. UNEP-DHI is hosted at DHI, an independent, international consulting and research-based not-for-profit foundation of more than 1000 employees, with offices in 30+ countries, and with more than 50 years of experience in water resources management.

Since its inception in 1996, UNEP-DHI has become a core resource for UNEP’s work on freshwater issues and in delivering UNEP’s Programmes of Work. The Centre’s ability to draw on DHI’s expertise in water and project implementation, as well as those of a broad network of partners, is one of its greatest strengths.


UNEP-DHI head office is hosted at the DHI headquarters in Høsholm, 25 km north of Copenhagen, Denmark. Since 2015, UNEP-DHI also operates from a representative office in the UN City, Copenhagen. See contact details for both offices below.
