Activities

Through decision BC-10/2 on the strategic framework for the implementation of the Basel Convention for 2012-2021, Parties are encouraged to take specific actions to implement the strategic framework through the activities listed in the biennial programme of work.

The following means of implementation have been identified as some possible options for implementing the Basel Convention, in accordance with the strategic framework.

    2. External resources and funding;
    3. Private sector;
    4. Regional cooperation;
    5. Capacity-building involving human resources, organizational and institutional development;
    6. Mechanism for promoting implementation and compliance;
    7. Partnerships;
    8. Financial mechanism.

These options are described in detail in document UNEP/CHW.10/INF/34.

The Conference of the Parties, in adopting decision BC-11/26 on financing and budget for the biennium 2014-2015, mandated the Secretariat to develop and implement activities that are supportive of the goals and objectives set out in the strategic framework.  As such, the Secretariat has developed a concept note for funding in order to support Parties in the implementation of the strategic framework and the Indonesian-Swiss country-led initiative (CLI) (programme of work activity 14.3)
