The theme for the upcoming meetings of the conferences of the parties to the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm conventions and the related high-level segment, from 19 to 31 July 2021, will be “Global Agreements for a Healthy Planet; Robust chemicals and waste management.” These sessions, offered either as an autonomous entity or as part of the popular MOOC, deal with the growing trends in the production of electrical waste and the impact on human health and the environment. The SAB welcomes enhanced cooperation with the WCO and Customs administrations to better prevent and combat the illegal trade in hazardous waste. Originally scheduled for the 5th United Nations Environment Assembly, OEWG-12 is now postponed until further notice. The minutes of the online segment meeting are available now.
