Strategic plan


The secretariat has developed a strategic plan to address the needs of developing countries and countries with economies in transition for technical assistance in the sound management of hazardous industrial chemicals, in collaboration with the Stockholm and Basel Conventions. The strategic plan has been shared with IOMC partners and comments received have been incorporated. The plan focuses on 4 key pillars:

  1. Awareness-raising on industrial chemicals management and information exchange on the Rotterdam Convention and other relevant chemicals MEAs (Basel Convention, Stockholm Convention, SAICM, Montreal Protocol etc.);
  2. Building national capacity for performing risk assessments;
  3. Building national capacities for developing and implementing risk management measures (development/strengthening of national legislation and policies for the sound management of industrial chemicals);
  4. Knowledge development at the national and regional levels;
