About this Session

Projects play a vital role in implementing Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) at the national level, offering valuable capacity-building and technical assistance to developing countries.

As the allocation of funds grows through various financial mechanisms and the utilization of these funds covers broader scopes, the need for a robust knowledge management system becomes crucial.

Such a system not only enables tracking the progress of projects but also facilitates understanding their positive impacts and identifying successful practices that can be replicated in different contexts. By integrating data and ensuring transparency of results, effective knowledge management brings clarity to the forefront.

This online event will explore current and future avenues where technology can enhance collaboration, foster growth, and facilitate improved communication about on-the-ground developments.

Join us to delve into the transformative potential of technology in the realm of MEAs and discover how it can empower us to effectively share and leverage project knowledge.
