  • To develop knowledge and awareness on the major environmental conventions; 
  • To enhance capacities for the adequate implementation of environmental law; 
  • To promote knowledge sharing and dissemination of good practice in the implementation of MEAs; 
  • To stimulate the discussion and critical analysis of environmental issues;
  • To improve and/or develop participants’ problem solving and negotiation skills; 
  • To strengthen capacity development by providing training tools to ensure that the newly acquired knowledge and problem solving skills are retained.
