UNEP CEP supports EU CARICOM Workshop on Environmental Negotiations!
There are more than one hundred MEAs of relevance to the Caribbean, and while Caribbean countries are parties to and strong supporters of many of these MEAs, their provisions have not been fully incorporated into national legislation, in many countries. Notwithstanding, MEAs represent a good platform through which national environment and sustainable development goals may be realised and many of the problems affecting the global commons addressed.
The Project entitled CAPACITY BUILDING RELATED TO MULTILATERAL ENVIRONMENTAL AGREEMENTS (MEAs) IN AFRICAN, CARIBBEAN AND PACIFIC (ACP) COUNTRIES – The Caribbean Hub Sub-component (2009-CPL-2262-2661-3771 was initiated by the ACP Ambassadors in Brussels and is part of the overall European Commission Programme for Capacity Building related to the implementation of MEAs in the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries.
The CARICOM Secretariat is the regional hub for the Caribbean under this project and will be strengthened to allow for the delivery of quality capacity-building services to Caribbean countries, such as project management and writing skills, negotiations and lobbying skills, legal drafting skills, information management and exchange, and the synergistic implementation of MEAs in a coherent and integrated manner.
