I lead the Public Awareness & Outreach Unit at Joint Services of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions (UNEP Joint Convention Services), located in Geneva. I also serve as Focal Point to "Safe Planet: the United Nations Campaign for Responsibility on Hazardous Chemicals and Wastes", an ambitious multimedia campaign for ensuring the safety of the environment and human health against harmful substances and hazardous wastes.
This global public awareness and outreach campaign is designed to show how we can take responsibility for keeping the planet safe from these harmful substances and achieve the 2020 goal of sound management of chemicals and waste.
The Campaign will highlight solutions to the growing problem of hazardous chemicals and wastes that are available through initiatives undertaken by the three leading global chemicals and waste management instruments – the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions.
