Senior policy makers and their analysts from CARIFORUM countries are set to attend a three-day workshop on Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) into national development policies on Wednedsay, March 29 in Paramaribo Suriname, according to Caribbean Community Secretariat (CARICOM).
The Secretariat’s first regional workshop titled Capacity Building for the use of Integrated Environmental Assessments (IEAs) and for Mainstreaming Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) into Policy Development and Implementation, is part of the European Union-funded project on Capacity Building Related to Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Countries, which is being implemented by the CARICOM Secretariat in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
The training programme is aimed at strengthening their capacity to understand and extract key messages from IEAs to achieve priority environmental outcomes.
Participants will also be provided with guidelines for mainstreaming MEAs commitments and obligations into national policies, plans and programmes using IEAs as the main instrument. This could ensure the sustained and effective implementation of MEAs while reducing the burden of implementation on countries.
CARIFORUM countries includes: Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.
