About this project


The objective of this project is to strengthen capacities to improve the mainstreaming of the multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) into environmental decision-making and planning through improved information management capacities that will help improve environmental monitoring. The project's strategy emphasizes a long-term approach to institutionalizing capacities to meet MEA obligations through a set of learning-by-doing activities that allow for effective decision-making and policy-making regarding global environmental benefits. Specifically, the project will establish a sustainable system for the collection, compilation, processing, storage and dissemination of information. The project will seek to improve and expand the scope of the existing information management systems that collect environmental information and knowledge relevant to the Rio Conventions and other MEAs, and pilot this new system in key sectors in a selected territory that will generate lessons useful to fine-tune environmental information management. Active participation of stakeholder representatives in the project cycle will facilitate the strategic adaptation of project activities in keeping with project objectives. Moreover, it will provide a platform addressed to knowledge management and relevant environmental information that benefit both the national planning and budgeting processes and the improvement of environmental management standards.


To strengthen environmental information and knowledge management to integrate goals subscribed under multilateral environmental agreements into national planning and decision-making.
