The expert working group on environmentally sound management collected several case studies to provide practical examples of measures used to enhance environmentally sound management in the informal sector.
The twelfth meeting of the Conference of the Parties agreed to include provision for the collection of initiatives to promote environmentally sound management in the informal sector in the work programme of the expert working group. Accordingly, the expert working group collected case studies describing parties’ experience with implementing environmentally sound management in the informal sector. Parties and others are invited to provide further information on such initiatives to serve as practical examples and reference to other Parties. The examples listed below do not intend to provide a definition of the informal sector.
