The Board meets once a year to review progress under the programme on the basis of reports from the Trust Fund Implementation Committee and programme participants, as well as other relevant information provided to them on implementation of the programme.
The Board also provides operational guidance on the implementation of the strategic priorities of the programme and advises on other relevant matters as required. The Board reports to the ICCM at its sessions on the implementation of the QSP.
During each meeting of the Board, a committee comprising the regional representatives and trust fund donors meets to consider the operation of the trust fund. That committee reviews reports from the Trust Fund Implementation Committee on project execution and from UN Environment on the financial resources and administration of the trust fund. It provides guidance and takes decisions thereon.
