UNEP - Regional Office for Asia Pacific - Training in Environmental Law

To further strengthen capacity to implement environmental law, UNEP organizes global training programmes on environmental law and policy every two years. About 400 environmental lawyers and policymakers from around the globe have been trained since 1993. The next global training programme on environmental law and policy (GTP10) is planned for 2011.

To replicate this programme Asia Pacific, UNEP organized Regional Training Programmes in Tianjin, China and in Bangkok, Thailand. The next regional training programme will be in 2010 or 2011.

UNEP has also collaborated with Hans Siedel Foundation to organize National workshops on environmental law and policy in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Vietnam since 1995.
