Environmental Governance and Conventions

International Governance
The environmental governance system reflects both successes and failures of the development of global environmental politics and policies. The role of the International Governance is to build on those successes while trying to address the gaps encountered in the Global Environmental Governance framework.

MEAs Support and Cooperation
DELC promotes coherence and synergies among MEAs by developing and advocating for tools and other initiatives for institutional approaches in the implementation of internationally agreed environmental goals and objectives as set out in MEAs. The Unit leads in promoting UNEPs’ closer cooperation with MEA Secretariats by providing programmatic and technical advisory support to MEA Secretariats in the operation and implementation of these agreements as well as coordinates and facilitates collaborative arrangements between UNEP and MEA Secretariats.
