What's New?


     Lead and Cadmium Discussions at UNEP GC27

    The Governing Council noted that there is continued need to address challenges posed by lead and cadmium throughout their life cycles, particularly in developing countries and those with economies in transition.

    It also urged governments to participate in the Global Alliance to Eliminate Lead Paint, a UNEP-WHO collaboration.  

    GAELP will raise awareness about lead poisoning during the International lead poisoning prevention week of action 20-26 October 2013.
