: The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) was created as a fundamental institution for the global environment. Its raison d’etre was the coordination of environmental activities in the UN system. The paper will provide a comprehensive analysis of the UNEP as a subsidiary body of the United Nations in charge of environmental protection. The structure will be presented and its adequacy will be considered. Special attention in the article will be paid to the question of why the UNEP does not have the status of a specialized agency like the FAO, the WHO, etc. All the challenges, crises, successes and failures that the UNEP has faced in environmental protection will be considered throughout history. 2022 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the UNEP, and this anniversary provides an opportunity to reflect and rethink, to create a renewed identity forthe United Nations Environment Program in orderto adequately respond to the world’s growing environmental challenges, such as climate change. Also, the paper will analyze the relationship between Serbia and the UNEP in the fight to preserve the environment. The current cooperation between the UNEP and Serbia will be reviewed and the possible improvement of that cooperation will be pointed out, bearing in mind that Serbia is facing a number of problems in the field of environmental protection and preservation.
