20 February 2009 - Four countries have joined the CIEN family

Stakeholder meetings, CIEN workshops and an ESTIS training has taken place in four countries. These projects were supported with funds from the Stockholm Convention Secretariat and implemented by UNEP Chemicals. In addition to fostering networking among national stakeholders and the creation of a national portal for chemical information, these trainings focussed on building capacity among parties of the Stockholm Convention to participate more effectively in international deliberations.
