Supported by UNEP, the Multilateral Environmental Agreements Information and Knowledge Management Initiative (InforMEA) aims to assist Parties to Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) and the environment community at large, to access MEAs information from one central location. The Initiative currently includes 40 global and regional Agreements from 14 Secretariats hosted by 4 UN organizations and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Its membership also includes observers involved in MEA information management. The portal provides information on MEAs' decisions and resolutions, news, calendars of events, list of Parties, national focal points and national reports and strategies. It also integrates literature, national legislation and case law as compiled in Ecolex - the Gateway to Environmental Law, collaboration between the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and UNEP.
