MEA League Tables

Stakeholder Forum's research into the ratification of five key Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) shows that a number of countries are stalling on their environmental commitments. The results have been tabulated into a Global League Table, which ranks countries according to their commitment to each MEA.

The five MEAs in question are the Bio-Safety Protocol, Kyoto Protocol, Rotterdam Convention on the International Trade of Hazardous Chemicals, Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, and the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

It is hoped that the publication of Global League Tables will provide an urgent reminder that not all countries are meeting their commitments to sustainable development and that universal ratification of MEAs represents a crucial step in halting environmental destruction.
