Multilateral Environmental Agreements
Negotiator's handbook

The handbook is prepared as a solid introduction to negotiation or working on Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) for those with little or not background, as well as a key reference tool for experienced negotiators. Overall, the purpose of the document is to provide a reference tool that will enhance the capacity of those working on MEAs and involved in international negotiations.

The handbook is a joint publication of Environment Canada and the UEF-UN Environment Course on MEAs. Environment Canada initiated and provided core contributions for the project.
