HOW DOES CIEN HELP REGIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION?
In the recently adopted Strategic Approach for International Chemical Management (SAICM), delegates called for strengthening regional collaboration in the implementation of multi-lateral environmental agreements (MEA).
From its begining, CIEN took this approach by encouraging information exchange and activities at the regional level. For example:
• UNEP and USEPA have held regional and sub-regional workshops to create synergies among participating countries.
• ESTIS is being used in several countries as a common platform to facilitate regional and international collaboration.
In doing so, UNEP provides countries with a tool that can serve as a backbone for the development of a country's information system as required under various conventions.
