Asia Environmental Enforcement Award

 

Asia Environmental Enforcement Award is an environmental award that recognizes outstanding enforcement officers or organizations as leaders who boldly and fearlessly implement and enforce national environmental laws and multilateral environmental conventions, and fight environmental crime, illicit trade in ODS, chemicals and waste, and other environmental violation. The Award is initiated in 2014 and will continue consecutively for at least till 2017.

 

The Regional Enforcement Network for Chemicals and Waste (REN) is a project funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and implemented by UN Environment in 25 countries in Northeast Asian, South Asia and Southeast Asia, with the aim to enhance the capacity of the customs in the region to control the illegal trade in chemicals and waste, and to further strengthen the existing network as a platform for effective enforcement at the regional and national levels.

 

Nominations will be by invitation only.

The invitation will be sent to the 25 participating countries and the partner organizations of REN, as well as the National Ozone Units in Asian countries. Each country/organization receiving the invitation is invited to nominate an individual or a team/organization for consideration for the Chemical and Waste Category.
