Partners/ Stakeholders of the Nairobi Convention

The Convention has built partnerships with the governments of the region through the respective focal points and national taskforces, and with other relevant stakeholders such as research and academic organizations, NGOs and the private sector.

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.
