IETC at Basel OEWG8

Eigth Meeting of the open ended working group of the Basel convention

Many of the waste management stakeholders who engage with UNEP's International Environmental Technology Centre (IETC) will attend the 8th meeting of the Open-ended Working Group of the Basel Convention in Geneva, Switzerland, from 25 to 28 September 2012.  During the Basel meeting, IETC will organize a side event at lunch time on Thursday 27 September, to highlight current IETC activities that contribute to Basel Convention implementation.

The side event will be an opportunity to hear the latest news on:

  • the upcoming biennial conference of the Global Partnership on Waste Management (Osaka, 5-6 November 2012);

  • the recent e-waste policy dialogue (Osaka, 18-20 July 2012);

  • the IETC-UNITAR work currently under way to develop guidelines for national waste management strategies;

  • a new IETC project on engaging the private sector in waste management in developing countries.

Please join us at the IETC side event on Thursday 27 September if you will be at the Basel OEWG meeting.
