UNEP Assesses Links between Chemicals and Waste Management and Other Issues
Ahead of a major international gathering on chemicals and waste management, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) has released an assessment of chemicals and waste management’s linkages with other issues. The report also provides options for coordinating and cooperating on areas of common interest.
The fifth session of the International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM5) is scheduled to convene in October 2020, in Bonn, Germany.
The publication titled, ‘Assessment on linkages with other clusters related to chemicals and waste management and options to coordinate and cooperate on areas of common interest,’ recognizes the need for multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder cooperation to advance the sound management of chemicals and waste and the SDGs. Such cooperation would help streamline and avoid duplication of efforts, increase visibility of priority topics, and bundle resources to achieve common goals.
