Gender & SAICM Beyond 2020: How to create a gender-just healthy planet
The present publication was produced as part of the project: "Gender and Chemicals - Together for a gender-just healthy planet", conducted by the MSP Institute in 2019.
There is a number of gender aspects relevant to chemicals and chemicals and waste management. However, many of them are not receiving the attention they should in order to ensure the best possible decisions in policy-making and effective implementation.
The goal of this report is to increase the integration of gender in international chemicals and waste management policies and implementation. It aims at raising awareness of gender aspects and to increase the participation of women’s organisations and gender experts in the UN process dealing with chemicals management: SAICM Beyond 2020.
