This activity will support the continuation of some of the activities of the REN network and its coordination with EU Member States.
Assessment of information exchange mechanisms
This activity will assess the most appropriate means for the exchange and sharing of information between the two regions and if necessary develop a tool. First an inventory needs to be made of mechanisms and tools which are already developed. Experiences need to be gathered on the working and challenges of these mechanisms/tools. Based on the assessment, eventual a new mechanism.
Development of guiding materials
This activity aims to develop guidance materials. First of all in instruction explaining the use of the information exchange mechanism as described above; to be used during the training events, but also as stand-alone material. Other guidance materials include prosecution of waste crime, involving parties in the EU and the Asian Pacific region and a collection of examples of good practice in relation to verifications, successful repatriations and collaborative investigations. UN Environment REN will be engaged as subcontractor for this activity.
