The Basel Convention regulates the transboundary movements of hazardous and other wastes and obliges its Parties to ensure that such wastes are managed and disposed of in an environmentally sound manner.

Its aim is to promote a shared responsibility between exporting and importing countries in protecting human health and the environment from the harmful effects of certain chemicals, by enabling the trade in very dangerous substances to be controlled and monitored.

ImageThe Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) is a global treaty to protect human health and the environment from persistent organic pollutants (POPs). POPs are chemicals that remain intact in the environment for long periods, become widely distributed geographically, accumulate in the fatty tissue of living organisms and are toxic to humans and wildlife. POPs circulate globally and can cause damage wherever they travel. In implementing the Convention, Governments will take measures to eliminate or reduce the release of POPs into the environment.

ImageThe information brochure on the Hazardous Chemicals and Wastes Conventions contains a brief non-technical overview of the three Conventions (Rotterdam Convention, Stockholm Convention and Basel Convention), how they complement each other and where they are different. The brochure is available in English, French and Spanish. Together the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions cover key elements of “cradle-to-grave” management of hazardous chemicals, most comprehensively in the case of POPs, which are covered by all three treaties.
