Sekotong, Lombok: Elawati blames herself for what happened to her son.

IPEN Co-Chair, Olga Speranskaya, leads the EECCA Regional Meeting.

On September 28th and 29th, IPEN Participating Organizations from the Eastern Europe, Caucasus, and Central Asia (EECCA) region met in Erevan, Armenia. At the meeting, IPEN POs in EECCA discussed IPEN's current and future projects, campaigns and initiatives, as well as the role IPEN EECCA POs will play in these activities. IPEN new initiatives, including Women and Chemicals, Gender Strategy, Women’s Caucus, Ocean Pollution, and Chemicals in Products were on the agenda of the meeting and aroused great interest. Three presentations on gender and endocrine disrupting chemicals, POPs in breast milk and monitoring of heavy metals in food linked the work of NGOs with that of the EECCA scientific community.

The 1st meeting of the intersessional process considering the Strategic Approach and the sound management of chemicals and waste beyond 2020 was recently held in Brasilia, and numerous IPEN Participating Organization representatives participated.
