The project’s objective is to improve institutional and technical capacities to meet and sustain the objectives of the three Rio Conventions and other MEAs. Specifically, this will be carried out by targeting and training government staff at the local, regional and national levels on the specific interpretation of Rio Convention provisions as they apply to their respective roles and responsibilities to implement associated development policies.
The expected outcome of this project is that best practices and innovative approaches for meeting and sustaining the Rio Conventions are available and accessible for implementation through national development policies and programmes. This outcome is disaggregated into three components:
Component 1: Integrated and coordinated Environmental Information Management and Decision Support System
Component 2: Strengthened institutional and technical capacities for knowledge creation
Component 3: Public awareness and environmental education
