Multilateral Environmental Agreement (MEA) negotiations are among the most dynamic negotiations in international law. The process, structure and substance of negotiations has been evolving over time requiring negotiators to be well guided on procedural as well as substantive aspects of negotiations.

Since 2004, UNEP and the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) have co-organized an Annual MEA training Course on negotiations and diplomacy focusing on MEAs to equip negotiators on their role as well as on the process and structure of MEA negotiations. This guide supports the annual MEA training course on negotiations and diplomacy, giving readers a better understanding on how to navigate these dynamic negotiations.
