Access information on Multilateral Environmental Agreements

The InforMEA Initiative

The InforMEA Initiative brings together Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEA) to develop harmonized and interoperable information systems for the benefit of Parties and the environment community at large. The Initiative is facilitated by the UN Environment, financially supported by the European Union. The MEA Steering Committee meets annually and provides strategic direction. Its Working Group meets periodically during the year and is responsible for the technical implementation of projects.

What is InforMEA?

InforMEA is the first project established by this Initiative. InforMEA harvests COP decisions and resolutions, news, events, MEA membership, national focal points, national reports and implementation plans from MEA secretariats and organizes this information around a set of agreed terms. The initiative develops harmonized and inter-operable information systems for the benefit of Parties and the environment community at large.
