OPCW Conference on International Cooperation and Chemical Safety & SecurityActivity by Amber Cosentino | added on Apr 27, 2011 | Netherlands
Sponsor(s): The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons
The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will host an OPCW Conference on International Cooperation and Chemical Safety and Security on 12 and 13 September 2011.
The Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) represents the singular legal instrument comprehensively banning chemical weapons and the misuse of chemistry. The CWC thereby helps to ensure that chemistry is used only for peaceful purposes and for the benefit of humankind.
This Conference is intended to promote the goals of the CWC by highlighting both the achievements of OPCW and the challenges that lie ahead. The Conference will seek to enhance support for the Convention’s objectives, including international cooperation with major stakeholders (United Nations, State Parties to the Convention, regional and international organisations, the chemistry industry, the IUPAC, non-governmental organisations, academic institutions and think tanks). This event will provide a forum for exploring sustainable ways and means of sharing knowledge and best practices to protect chemical plants from potential security threats.
