The Rotterdam Convention Secretariat carries out project activities running for a period of 6-12 months. These long-term activities might lead to a more sustainable impact in the recipient Parties. The Rotterdam Convention Secretariat plans and implements these activities in collaboration with external partners that may include academia and research centres, NGOs, civil society, ministerial departments and intergovernmental organisations. These projects are based on legally recognized agreements, called Letters of Agreements (LOAs), which are concluded with each single partner/service provider.

Between 2018 and 2021, nine LOAs were signed with countries across the Asia, Africa and Latin America & Caribbean regions. The timeline below gives an overview of these projects.
