A Toxics-Free Future


NGO Guide to SAICM Updated for the 2nd Open-Ended Working Group

As we approach the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management's (SAICM's) 2nd Open Ended Working Group (OEWG2) meeting, IPEN has updated its 2008 "NGO Guide to SAICM" booklet with a new preface. The new text addresses SAICM developments since the Guide was first released, touches on the wide scope of SAICM, and includes information about lead and pesticide poisoning and emerging toxics issues.

The updated booklet is currently available in English, French, Russian and Spanish. An Arabic version will be finalized shotly.
