Outcome: Fourth annual joint meeting to enhance cooperation and coordination between the regional centres under the Basel and Stockholm conventions was held from 27 to 29 November 2013 in International Environment House, Geneva. The focus of the meeting was on issues relating to the performance and sustainability of the regional centres under the Basel and Stockholm Conventions. The methodology for evaluating the performance and sustainability of the regional and subregional centres based on the criteria for evaluating the performance of the regional centres was discussed extensively and recommendations were made on how to collect relevant information in order to undertake such an evaluation objectively. In addition, the meeting proved to be instrumental for the regional centres to share their experiences on best practices, success stories as well as the challenges they have faced in the course of their operations.
