Launch of REN Project to Combat Illegal Trafficking in Harmful Chemicals and Hazardous Waste in Asia

This event will feature the UNEP OzonAction and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) partnership on the Project REN aiming at addressing the challenge of ODS illegal trade. The Project REN will be implemented by UNEP OzonAction CAP ROAP in cooperation with 25 countries in the region. Project REN aims to reduce unwanted transboundary movement of harmful substances and hazardous waste (HSHW) in Asia by preventing illegal trade and encouraging legal trade. Through the improved enforcement cooperation regionally and globally, and the targeted problem-solving capacity-building at the national level through a network, the project will enable customs officers and other key enforcement officers to monitor and control transboundary movements of chemicals and waste more efficiently. The duration for the project is three years.
