INT/Environmental Conventions; developing countries participation

Description

The project supports the participation of developing country representatives in the meetings of international environmental conventions, agreement negotiations and expert seminars. The support is vital for the capacity building of developing countries. It also enables them to implement their commitments and take part in the decision making, follow-up and evaluation of the implementation of different agreements. The incorporation of environmental obligations into developing countries' sustainable development strategies ja development programmes, in particular into poverty reduction strategies, is essential for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and future Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
