- Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) are legally binding agreements between States or International Organisations that have responsibilities for managing elements of the natural environment. The Chemicals and Waste focused MEAs address procedures and actions related to the transboundary movements of materials such as hazardous waste, radioactive waste, and persistent organic pollutants. MEAs provide strong foundations to support and guide Pacific islands in the management of impacts from waste, controlling the transboundary movement of waste, and supports countries to implement the SDGs and secure a healthier environment for their people.
