Additional Conventions and Secretariats

There are over 500 MIAs, but about 300 are regional rather than global [13]. The tendency over the last 30 years has been to develop broader multi-issue rather than single-issue treaties. Today, there are six major Secretariats implementing international treaties, or Conventions: Biological Diversity, International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna or Flora (CITES), Ozone, the Montreal Protocol, Migratory Species of Wild Animals, and the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal. UN Environmental Programme also implements the Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, and several additional Secretariats implement treaties on climate change, prior informed consent (providing information on the risks associated with importing various chemicals), desertification, and regional seas.
