Following the 23rd session of the Governing Council, Governments, Intergovernmental and Non-Governmental Organizations were invited to nominate members to the Working Group on lead and cadmium to assist UNEP in finalizing the reviews on lead and cadmium.
The First meeting of the Lead and Cadmium Working Group was held at the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) building in Geneva (Switzerland) from 18-22 September 2006.
During that meeting, in order to inform future discussions of the next 24th session of the Governing Council on the need for global action in relation to lead and cadmium, the Lead and Cadmium Working Group members considered the revised drafts of the reviews of scientific information on lead and cadmium circulated in advance of the meeting. They also prepared technical summaries of the key findings of each review.
