The overall objective of the Programme is to enhance the capacity of ACP countries to comply with Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) in order to improve the countries’ management of their environment and natural resources. The long-term intended impact of Phase II is to reduce the adverse effects of loss of biodiversity, and contribute to the sound management of chemicals, including the adequate disposal of waste and obsolete pesticides. 

The specific objective is to support and strengthen institutions and other stakeholders involved in the mainstreaming and implementation of Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) in Africa, Caribbean, and Pacific countries. 

The expected results of Phase 2 Programme are as follows:

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).
