Targeting toxic chemicals on the way to the Johannesburg summit

United Nations Environment Programme (2001)

The World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) offers the opportunity for concerted action by governments, industry, and NGOs to insist on proper chemical testing and to reinforce calls to halt production and use of the most dangerous chemicals. To that end, the next few months offer a critical window during which to ratify and commit funding for four chemicals-related treaties

develop robust regional chemical management strategies

and launch efforts safely to rid the Earth of obsolete chemical stockpiles.
