The Secretariat is making available an overview of contributions to the Technical Cooperation Trust Fund of the Basel Convention (BD) and the Special Voluntary Trust Funds of the Rotterdam and Stockholm convention (RV, SV) for the implementation of the Programmes of Work (PoW) of the three conventions, as approved by their respective conferences of the Parties.

Contributions

The table contains information on received contributions for activities under the three conventions, including synergies, as well as possible funding gaps in case no or partial funding has been received for the implementation of PoW activities.

For each activity that has received partial or no funding as of to date, the Secretariat has developed concept notes containing a brief outline of the activities to be undertaken under the respective PoW and their indicative budgets.

Donors who are interested in contributing to the trust funds of the three conventions are invited to download relevant concept notes.

The Secretariat will be pleased to engage, if appropriate, in developing full-fledged project proposal for the respective activities.

All resource mobilization-related information, including the concept notes, will be updated on a regular basis.
