The biennial work programme
of the Convention is a partnership programme based
on the linkages between different environmental
issues: economic development issues as well as
science and policy.
In recognition of the limitations
that exist in expertise and resources in the WIO
region, the Nairobi Convention has partnered with
the Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission
(Helsinki Commission, HELCOM), and signed memoranda
of understanding with regional and global NGOs
such as WWF, IUCN and WIOMSA, among others.
Through these partnerships and
linkages, the Nairobi Convention harnesses broad-based
support, which is critical for the successful
implementation of its work programme.
