Meeting Objectives: The objective of the regional preparatory meeting is to give Parties within the Eastern Europe region the possibility to consult each other in advance of the face-to-face segment of the 2021/2022 COPs, consider meeting documents, discuss substantive matters, identify regional priorities and challenges, and facilitate the preparation of regional positions. The programme for the meeting has been developed in consultation with members of the bureaux of the conferences of the Parties to the three conventions from the Eastern Europe region. As indicated in the programme, the break out group sessions of the meeting are closed to observers in order to allow Parties to discuss regional positions on items of the agendas of the meetings of the conferences of the Parties.

The regional preparatory meetings for the 2022 face-to-face segment of the meetings of the conferences of the Parties to the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm conventions are organized thanks to the generous financial support provided by the Governments of Norway and Switzerland, as well as the European Union through the Programme on Capacity Building related to Multilateral Environmental Agreements in the African, Caribbean and Pacific countries (ACP MEAs Programme).
