The Secretariat of the Strategic Approach to Chemicals Management (SAICM) and the University of Cape Town (UCT) have established a Community of Practice (CoP) on Lead in Paint to bring representatives from different sectors together and to create a learning network around issues related to the elimination of Lead Paint.
The next online session will be held on 13 July at 14:00 – 15:30 Central European Time (CET) and will discuss “Preparing for the 10th International Lead Poisoning Prevention Week”. Participation is open to the public upon registration as a member of the community of practice.
The SAICM Secretariat invites you to register to join the Community of Practice on Lead in Paint so that you can participate in regular online discussions facilitated by recognized experts in the subject.
