The Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) will hold its 3rd Meeting of the Open-Ended Working Group (OEWG-3) from 2- 4 April, 2019 in Montevideo, Uruguay and IPEN will participate. SAICM is the only international agreement that addresses the full range of known and newly discovered health and environmental concerns associated with the production and use of chemicals. The 2006 decision that established SAICM expires in 2020 and now there is a global process (the "Beyond 2020" process) to determine what comes next.

The Beyond 2020 process has one required result: It must, “develop recommendations regarding measurable objectives in support of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” In response, the IPEN Steering Committee adopted a one-page Toxics-Free Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Pledge in October 2018 that explains actions for a toxics-free future that are essential for sustainable development. This reflects a series of papers on relevant Beyond 2020 topics developed by IPEN and the Pesticide Action Network (PAN) in 2017, including measurable objectives in support of Agenda 2030.

La Red de Acción en Plaguicidas y sus Alternativas de América Latina, RAP-AL, RAP-Chile, IPEN y Alianza por una Mejor Calidad de Vida tienen el agrado de invitar a la presentación del Informe "Situación de los Plaguicidas Altamente Peligrosos en Chile" de Maria Elena Rozas.

La presentación se realizará el dia 13 de marzo de 2019 a las 18.15 hrs., en el Museo Vicuña Mackenna, Vicuña Mackenna N 94, Santiago.
