(8) The Kuwait Regional Organization for the protection of the Marine Environment

In Decision CM9/7, the Ninth Meeting of the Council of Ministers of the Regional Organization for the Protection of the Marine Environment approved the Regional Programme of Action. The Programme of Action serves to implement both the 1990 Kuwait Protocol for the Protection of the Marine Environment against Pollution from Land-Based Sources (a Protocol to the 1978 Kuwait Regional Convention for Co-operation on the Protection of the Marine Environment from Pollution) and the 1995 Global Programme of Action.

The main projects envisaged by the Regional Programme are (1) the updating of the surveys of source categories of land-based activities and their impacts, capabilities, and constraints in the region; (2) development of criteria, guidelines, and standards for the management of land-based activities; (3) preparation of a river basin management programme; and (4) a pilot study on POPs.

In a separate Decision CM9/3, the Meeting of the Council of Ministers adopted a number of other proposals related to the implementation of the 1990 Protocol, including the convening of training seminars and the preparation of a manual for the implementation of the protocol.
