Persistent Organic Pollutants

  • Supporting the Implementation of the Global Monitoring Plan of POPs in Latin America and Caribbean States
  • Priority Actions for NIP Implementation in the Caribbean
examples of results to date
Examples of results to date
  • UNEP has assisted more than 130 countries to develop national biosafety frameworks and to build national BCH capacity.
  • SWERA has mapped 13 countries including Belize and Cuba. Ocean surface wind data available at www.swera.unep.net
  • Cuba has developed 1.5 MW of retractable (hurricane proof) turbines in a small island minigrid.
examples of results to date1
Examples of results to date
  • The IW:LEARN Caribbean component is developing a specific activity on multi-project learning in the Caribbean -- a region with an impressive concentration of GEF efforts in all focal areas
  • UNEP has provided support to 8 of the 16 eligible Caribbean OFPs under the Country Support Programme
examples of challenges to date
Examples of challenges to date
  • Economic and commercial integration in the region (CARICOM) is not mirrored by a common approach (Cartagena?, GEF?) to similar environmental threats/opportunities
  • Vulnerability and interconnectivity of small island ecosystems makes project design more complex as interventions must be multi-focal to be more effective
examples of challenges to date1
Examples of challenges to date
  • Fine tuning a good national/regional implementation model for shared development
  • Experimenting with learning and sharing on a regional basis
  • Working as a GEF family to strengthen knowledge management efforts
some lessons learned
Some lessons learned
  • Build on existing regional forums and entities
  • Outline detailed implementation arrangements / expectations in advance of project launch (inception workshops critical)
  • Expect that performance in regional projects will be uneven -- providing allowances and solutions for these
