Chemicals and Waste Governance Beyond 2020

Exploring Pathways for a Coherent Global Regime

SAICM was established a decade ago as a voluntary approach to complement regulatory gaps to achieve sound management of chemicals by 2020. Despite significant actions taken since then, chemicals still pose a grave risk through the pollution of air, water, soil, and food.
In 2015, an international process was set in motion to design a new global framework for sound management of chemicals and wastes. The new framework will replace SAICM and it is envisaged to be adopted in 2020.
This report is the first attempt to analyse functions needed for effective chemicals and waste governance and to identify options for the institutional form in the post-2020 era. The report aims to increase understanding of reforms required to protect human health and the environment from hazardous chemicals and wastes, in light of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development.

Hide / Show Abstract

The Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) was established in 2006 as an outcome of the World Summit on Sustainable Development. Since then, SAICM has catalysed action to achieve sound management of chemicals throughout their life cycle by 2020. In October 2015, the 4th session of the International Conference on Chemicals Management decided to formulate a new global framework for sound management of chemicals and waste to be adopted in 2020.
