Project Components and Expected Results
Phase 2 is implemented by UNEP under two components:
1) Institutional strengthening of three regional Hubs to provide assistance in the implementation of MEAs in the ACP regions hosted by the African Union Commission (AUC) in Africa, the Caribbean Community Secretariat (CARICOM) in the Caribbean and the Secretariat for Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) in the Pacific;
2) Support to the implementation of specific MEAs in the two focus areas, namely, the CBD, CMS and CITES as well as Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions with direct support from UNEP Divisions, Regional Offices, select NGOs and Collaborating Centers. The two components are designed to work in full coordination and harmony.
The expected results of Phase 2 aims to enhance:
1.Institutional capacity-building - The key ACP regional institutions and MEA Secretariats involved have an enhanced and sustainable capacity to implement the target MEA clusters (chemicals/wastes and biodiversity).
2. National capacity-building - The national authorities and focal points in ACP countries have an enhanced capacity to implement the target MEA clusters (chemicals/wastes and biodiversity).
3. Synergistic implementation - The national authorities and focal points in ACP countries have in place specific processes or mechanisms that facilitate the sharing of information and experiences, and especially the synergistic implementation of the target MEA clusters (chemicals/wastes and biodiversity).
Phase 2 is implemented by FAO with the same expected results, with the addition of field-based projects to implement MEAs on pesticiderelatedissues;biodiversity (CBD), and mercury (Minamata Convention).
