Many multilateral environmental agreements (MEA) are a body to monitor the agreement. The body is often made up of states parties to the agreement (i.e. those who have signed, ratified or otherwise agreed to the agreement). These can be called The Conference of States Parties, Assembly of States Parties or a similar name. There may also be a secretariat to support the work of the governing body. This study aims to examine the emergence, development and dissemination of multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) – integrated legislation and institutionalization processes – as well as their ad hoc status and the question of the legal personality of their secretariats. It offers a legal understanding of the location of MEA secretariats within an existing international host institution, as well as a debate on the issue of relational agreements and the interpretation of the commonly used language that triggers these relationships. It examines the standard expression MEA „providing a secretariat“, the delegation of the powers of the host institution to the head of the secretariat of the Convention, possible conflict zones, the agreement on the host country and the functioning of relational agreements. The book presents an important report on the growing phenomenon in which an existing international institution provides a service base to LA MEA, which in turn triggers a chain of legal implications for the Secretariat, the host institution and the host country. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is home to the secretariats of many critical environmental agreements and multilateral research organizations that bring nations and the environmental community together to meet the major challenges of our time. There are many more MEAs than this manual. In addition to global conventions such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), there are agreements on specific themes such as the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species and certain regions, the Convention on the Protection of the Black Sea from Pollution.
