Towards a global biodiversity framework under the convention on biological diversity
This activity was undertaken as part of the Caribbean Hub sub-component of Phase III of the Programme for Capacity-Building related to Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) in the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries. The overall objective of the ACP-MEAs project in the Caribbean is to enhance countries' capacity to comply with MEAs and so to improve countries' management of their environment and natural resources. The long-term intended impact of the Programme is to reduce the adverse effects of loss of biodiversity and contribute to the sound management of chemicals. The project entails the provision of technical assistance, training, policy and advisory support services to enhance countries' ability to implement the provision of MEAs.
