Chapter Summary

This chapter explores some of the efforts being undertaken by different bodies and roles played by them to ensure and promote effective compliance with and enforcement of Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs). It begins by responding to the question of why such a focus on ensuring compliance currently exists, followed by an exposé of existing mechanisms to promote compliance with MEAs. From the general discussion on compliance mechanisms, the chapter elaborates the relevance of UNEP and the role it has developed in ensuring compliance with MEAs. The role played by UNEP in ensuring the effective implementation of common and cross-cutting issues for compliance is discussed. Examples of practical actions or activities undertaken by UNEP to promote compliance with the common cross-cutting issues of MEAs, while leaving specific MEA issues to the individual MEA Secretariats, are equally elaborated.

Keywords: compliance mechanisms; enforcement; Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs); UNEP
