The Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions are multilateral environmental agreements, which share the common objective of protecting human health and the environment from hazardous chemicals and wastes.
These agreements can assist countries to manage chemicals at different stages of their life-cycle. A framework for enhancing cooperation and coordination among these three conventions has been set up in order to strengthen the impact of the work of the three conventions at all levels.
