organisation profile

The CEP is funded by the Caspian littoral governments and the International community through the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) (of which United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Bank are the implementing agencies), the European Union / Tacis and the growing participation of the private sector.

Within the context of the CEP in the Second Phase, the main responsibilities of the five Caspian littoral states will include the following:

  • to contribute to the overall strategic policy and management direction to the CEP through their representation in the Steering Committee;
  • to provide technical and management advice to the CEP through their representation on the Advisory Groups;
  • to provide national policy guidance for the CEP through their National Coordination Structures (NCS) and Inter-sectoral Coordination Groups (ICG);
  • to ensure that policy guidance from the Steering Committee is reflected in national CEP-related policies and programme activities, as appropriate; and
  • to contribute and commit, financially and in kind, to implementation of the National Caspian Action Plans and the Strategic Action Programme.

CEP will concentrate efforts in the longer term on the implementation of the adopted NCAPs and SAP and further support to the Framework Convention Process. Implementation of the SAP will be supported by the CEP with the assistance of the International Partners at both the national and regional levels. During SAP implementation it is anticipated that other international agencies will apply to have their projects included under the CEP umbrella and in so doing become full international partners.
