Title: SYNERGIES AMONG MULTILATERAL ENVIRONMENTAL AGREEMENTS MEAs FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT


1
SYNERGIES AMONG MULTILATERAL ENVIRONMENTAL
AGREEMENTS (MEAs) FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
  • Colombo
  • 14 February 2005
  • Regional Workshop on Interlinkages and Synergies
    among MEAs
  • Bhujang Dharmaji
  • IUCN-Regional Biodiversity Programme Asia
  • bhujang_at_sltnet.lk

2
  • Address the complex interactions among human and
    natural systems
  • One Challenge Major Options

Other instruments Biosafety, POPs etc.
3
Achieving Linkages
Global MEAs, WSSD, MDGs
  • National
  • NBSAPs, NAPs, National Comms
  • PRSPs, Annual Plans


Local Community Action
4
Putting Synergies to work for Rio conventions
5
Tools for Synergies
  • The vehicles through which Synergies can be
    fostered includes
  • NBSAPs
  • NatComs
  • NAPAs
  • NAPs
  • NSSDs
  • MDGs
  • PRSPs
  • CSPs
  • NEAP etc.

6
Ecosystem Approach - A Framework for
Implementation
  • Rio MEAs have agreed to use Ecosystem Approach
    for implementation of each instrument to
  • Focus on functional relationships and processes
    in ecosystems
  • Enhance benefit sharing
  • Use adaptive management practices
  • Carry out actions at the appropriate scale
  • Ensure inter-sectoral cooperation

7
Challenges for cross cutting assessments
  • Policy overlaps and conflicts preventing
    effective implementation or co-implementation of
    conventions
  • Inter-institutional coordination and synergy
  • Effective technology transfer (including
    traditional knowledge)
  • Improved convention negotiation capacity and
    dissemination of decisions made
  • Effective awareness generation on cross cutting
    convention issues
  • Good human resource management and development
    strategies.
  • (Source GEF, 2004)

8
Methodology constraints
  • There is no single capacity assessment
    methodology / tool that can be universally
    adopted for achieving synergies among MEAs due
    to
  • Levels of understanding
  • Capacities to implement
  • Prevailing knowledge networks

9
Methodology and tools for cross-cutting
assessment
  • Countries have an option to pick and choose a
    combination of methodologies that addresses
  • Consultations with the line ministries and other
    stakeholders
  • Reviewing the related documentation
  • Compiling all relevant action plans, strategies
    and assessments
  • Designing a broad frame for incorporating cross
    cutting issues
  • Preparing a action plan to support
    implementation

10
Sharing experience and Lessons Learnt
  • Capacity building initiatives for Synergies
    between MEAs
  • Policy dialogues at country and regional levels
  • Information provision and networking
  • Awareness raising

11
Sharing experience (Contd..)
  • Developed a guiding frame for mainstreaming
    biodiversity, poverty and development into
    National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)
  • A publication Mainstreaming Biodiversity and
    Climate change- capturing the Synergies among
    CBD, UNFCCC and UNCCD
  • Supporting NCSA implementation in Bangladesh
  • Facilitating UNFCCC implementation in Lao PDR
  • Working with UNEP-DEC on developing issue based
    modules for Synergies among MEAs

12
IUCN contribution to the workshop
  • Exchange of lessons learnt and good practice
    guidelines
  • Stock-taking and problem solving through
    consultative process
  • Group exercises to build capacities on cross
    cutting issues, tools and methodologies
  • Building new partnerships
