The topics covered in these agreements are very broad: biodiversity and nature protection, climate change, protection of the ozone layer, desertification, chemicals and waste management, transboundary water and air pollution, environmental policy (including impact assessments, access to information and public participation), industrial accidents, protection of the sea and rivers, environmental responsibility. A detailed table has been drawn up listing the international environmental agreements to which the Union is already a party or signatory. The IEA website is constantly reviewed and updated. A comprehensive review was carried out during 2017, with the addition of numerous bilateral agreements and a comprehensive update of the accession measures of all MEAs and a large number of REAs. The current content includes more than 1,300 MEAs, more than 2,200 BEAs, 250 other environmental agreements and more than 90,000 accession actions of each country (date of signature, ratification or entry into force); Release instructions here). Jörg Balsiger and Lorris Germann, from the University of Geneva, identified more than 650 BEAs and laid the groundwork for the IEADB to become a comprehensive list of bilateral and multilateral environmental agreements. Here you will find a list of BEAs after a decade. The three main objectives of the 7th EU Environment Action Programme (2014-2020) have a key international dimension: the protection, preservation and enhancement of the Union`s natural capital, the transformation of the Union into a resource-efficient, green and competitive low-carbon economy and the protection of Union citizens from environmental pressures and risks to health and well-being. These policy objectives can only be achieved if a number of important international environmental agreements are actively supported and properly implemented, both at Union level and worldwide. How many multilateral environmental agreements have been signed? Data or graph of agreements by year and type (contract, protocol, amendment). In addition, the main agreements to facilitate the overview have also been grouped according to general environmental issues, in accordance with the structure of the site plan.
