CoverPractices in the Sound Management of Chemicals :: 2010

This publication was jointly prepared by the Division for Sustainable Development, United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

The publication aims to support the discussions on the thematic topic of "Chemicals" in the 18th and 19th sessions of the Commission on sustainable Development (CSD). It presents successful practices and experiences in the sound management of chemicals worldwide.

Nearly all case studies included were developed by individuals directly involved in the projects selected. The cases encompass information about the history of the projects as well as challenges, implementation experiences, lessons learned and future plans. It should, however, be noted that these case studies are but a small sample of the body of knowledge that is available in this area.
