Comments on Draft Ministerial Declaration of the 2019 United Nations Environment Assembly

Comments on Draft Ministerial Declaration of the 2019 United Nations Environment Assembly

The WMG is concerned about the fact that this language proposed is going back 25 years in time since there is already a 2020 target to phase out harmful toxic chemicals in consumer products under SAICM (1996). We call for an urgent phase out and ‘mandatory substitution’ of harmful chemicals as committed in 2002 at the WSSD in Johannesburg, and call UNEP not to ‘step on its toes’, and acknowledge previously agreed policy frameworks as well as Resolutions from past UNEAs.
