  • Discuss the strategy for strengthening and sustainability of the Basel and Stockholm conventions regional centres, including raising the visibility of the regional centres;

  • Brainstorm on, and collect feedback on the clearing-house mechanism (CHM) draft strategy

Directors of the Regional Centres under the Basel and Stockholm conventions

Outcome

More than 35 participants from 22 centres attended the meeting, as well as partners from UNEP Chemicals, the Minamata Secretariat, UNEP/OCHA and KemI, the Swedish Chemicals Agency. The very interactive format of the meeting allowed for a productive exchange of many ideas for both the general strategy for regional centres (i.e. how to enhance their technical capacity, visibility and resource mobilization skills) and for their interface with the clearing house mechanism.
