Multilateral Environmental Agreements

Barbados is Party to a significant number of Biodiversity related Multilateral Environmental Agreement (MEAs), including the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and its Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety;  Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES); Ramasar Convention on Wetland and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification and Drought (UNCCD). Membership in the MEAs commits Barbados to implement national activities towards their implementation, but also provides an opportunity to source grant funding.
