IPEN Regional Meeting for Southeast and East Asia Participating Organizations

IPEN Participating Organizations (POs) in Southeast and East Asia gathered for a regional meeting in Thailand last February 4-5, 2023. Fourteen (14) members from 11 POs representing 9 countries participated. The first day of the meeting held in Bangkok focused on sharing ideas and experiences from the participants with inputs into the development of a regional strategy. On the second day, the group visited the Nampu Industrial Pollution Site, Ratchaburi, where communities are using citizen science to defend their rights to a healthy environment. The community is a partner with one of IPEN’s POs, Ecological Alert and Recovery Thailand (EARTH), who also helped coordinate the regional meeting.

IPEN has engaged in the science-to-policy (Science-Policy) discussions under the BRS and Minamata Conventions, SAICM, and the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) for many years. In March 2022, UNEA adopted a resolution calling for the establishment of a new Science-Policy Panel to support action on chemicals, waste, and pollution.
