The meetings of the conferences of the parties to the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm conventions
will be held under one common theme called “From science to action, working for a safer tomorrow”. The purpose of the theme is to highlight the importance of the science-policy interface for the effectiveness of the conventions.
The science fair closely reflects the overall theme of the meetings. It aims to:
Increase understanding of the scientific basis of the three conventions;
- Clarify the scientific processes established under the conventions for their effective implementation;
- Increase awareness and understanding of the in-depth scientific considerations relating to decision-making under the three conventions.
Target audience of the science fair is delegates and observers to the 2015 triple COPs.
