Technical assistance to support Caribbean ACP countries with enforcement and compliance with the Basel, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Minamata and Cartagena (BRSMC) Conventions
The Caribbean Community (CARICOM), with financial assistance from the European Commission, intends to award a service contract for a Technical assistance to support Caribbean ACP countries with enforcement and compliance with the Basel, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Minamata and Cartagena (BRSMC) Conventions.
The overall objectives of the project of which this contract will be a part are as follows:
- Promote the enforcement of environmental treaties and goals in Caribbean ACP countries by way of influencing policies and legislative frameworks for Caribbean ACP countries to effectively implement MEAs and related commitments in the chemicals and waste, and biodiversity cluster of MEAs.
- Support the implementation of MEAs through the identification of gaps and building capacity to close these gaps in the chemicals and waste and biodiversity clusters at the national and regional levels in ACP countries, through the development of stronger compliance and enforcement measures. This will contribute to support ACP countries in addressing the challenges associated with the sound management of chemicals and waste, and loss of biodiversity.
- Provide technical assistance to the Caribbean ACP countries to implement selected chemicals and waste and biodiversity MEAs at the national and regional levels. Activities have been pre-identified based on –
(a) consultations conducted with CARICOM national focal points and Senior Policy Officials with oversight of environmental management in the Caribbean during Phase II;
(b) recommendations from the mid-term evaluation of Phase II; and (c) on a first needs assessment conducted in 2017 with regional implementing partners.
