Guidance for industry involvement in the integrated approach to financing the sound management of chemicals and waste, prepared by the SAICM Secretariat

A guidance document is being prepared with the objective to clearly outline the scope for implementation of industry involvement in the integrated approach to financing the sound management of chemicals and waste, encompassing both implementation and follow-up. The guidance aims to cover the entire life-cycle of chemicals and address both national and international levels. It is developed in response to the independent evaluation of implementation of the integrated approach to financing the sound management of chemicals and waste (UNEP/EA.4/INF.16, 2019) that identified gaps in the component concerning industry involvement, including lack of clarity of what counts as industry contributions, absence of a mechanism for tracking activities and financial flows, and poor understanding of industry participation at the national level. The results of this study are intended to provide helpful context for decision-makers in preparing the fifth session of the International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM-5).

The Secretariat seeks input from SAICM stakeholders to inform the preparation of the guidance document concerning industry involvement in the integrated approach to financing the sound management of chemicals and waste. We encourage all stakeholders to provide written comments by Friday 16th April 2021 to the draft document to be sent to the following e-mail address: saicm.chemicals@un.org. If you have any questions or you wish to learn more about the study, please do not hesitate to contact us using the same e-mail address.
