UN Environment is coordinating the four-year multi-partner programme – Capacity-building related to multilateral environment agreements (MEAs) in African, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) countries, known as the ACP MEAs programme.
A new publication provides an insight into Phase 1 (2009-2013) of the programme with contributions from those at the helm of the various objectives in stopping biodiversity loss, supporting sound management of chemicals and waste, cleaning up obsolete pesticides, combatting desertification, tackling climate change through the clean development mechanism and carbon markets and fundamentally, strengthening implementation of MEAs at the national and regional levels.
It is a critical resource for policy makers, development practitioners, and those involved in capacity building in the environment field by providing case studies as well as testimonials from the beneficiaries.
The programme is supported by the European Commission, in partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Secretariat for the African, Caribbean, and the Pacific group of states (ACP Secretariat), the African Union Commission (AUC), the Caribbean Community Secretariat (CARICOM), and the Secretariat for the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP).
