The MCP-ICLT is a four-year, UNEP-GEF funded project led by RAEIN-Africa in collaboration with six partner countries; Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi and Mozambique. The project falls under the UNEP Medium-term Strategy (2014-2017), sub-programme on Environmental Governance, whose objective is to ensure that environmental governance at country, regional and global levels is strengthened in line with agreed environmental priorities.
The purpose of the MCP-ICLT project is to contribute to ensuring an adequate level of protection in the field of safe transfer, handling, transport and use of LMOs resulting from modern biotechnology that may have adverse effects on the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity, also taking into account risks to human health, and specifically focusing on transboundary movements.
