SAICM Resource Facilitates Networking among Chemicals Policy Experts
By IISD SDG Knowledge Hub, April 14, 2020
The Strategic Approach for International Chemicals Management (SAICM) has launched an online platform that provides news and resources on chemicals of concern. Users can learn about emerging policy issues and their linkages with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The 'Chemicals Without Concern' website brings together documents, reports, case studies, infographics, videos, and other resources to provide a coherent knowledge resource on chemicals policy. The SAICM Secretariat welcomes submissions of relevant content.
The website also includes a section for individuals working on chemicals policy issues to register and network with other “people working for a healthier environment.” This database seeks to engage and connect individuals and organizations involved with chemicals management.
The website was developed under the framework of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) project on Global Best Practices on Emerging Chemical Policy Issues of Concern under SAICM, executed by the SAICM Secretariat. The site is currently in beta stage, and feedback is welcomed.
