In September 2023, the Global Framework on Chemicals was adopted in the ICCM5, including a strong emphasis on gender equality.

This milestone included a resolution for “Mainstreaming a Gender Perspective and Promoting Gender Equality and Empowerment of All Women and Girls in Chemicals and Waste Management.” This discussion built up on the momentum created after the ICCM5 in relation to gender by focusing on sharing case studies and practical experiences in integrating gender considerations into chemicals and waste management.

The discussion invited stakeholders from the government, private sector and multilateral organization in delving into the elements necessary to consider in developing a gender action plan. They included disaggregated data, women leadership and a holistic approach.
