The Regional Program

The Executive Bureau of the Council of Arab Ministers Responsible for the Environment (CAMRE) of the League of Arab States (LAS) approved by resolution the adoption of the Regional Program for Trade and Environment Capacity Building in the Arab Region during its meeting of 3-4 June 2003 in Beirut, Lebanon. The resolution was taken based on the recommendation of the Joint Commission for Environment and Development in the Arab Region (JCEDAR). Support for the program was reaffirmed in subsequent CAMRE sessions, the latest being the 19th Ministerial Session (Cairo, 5-6 December 2007) (Resolution 273).

A Joint Secretariat was established to manage and oversee the Program, which is led by the CAMRE Technical Secretariat and supported by ESCWA and UNEP/ROWA.

A Working Group on Trade and Environment Capacity Building in the Arab Region was subsequently established to provide the institutional capacity necessary to implement the regional program. View the current members of the Working Group.
