On 30 October 2023 (15:00 CET), the Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP) and its partners are hosting the webinar Worldwide Voices: Perspectives in tackling lead.

Despite significant progress, lead poisoning remains a serious threat around the globe, particularly in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), where almost one in three children is still exposed to unsafe levels of lead, primarily from paint, toys and electronics, among other sources. The G7’s annual summit was a monumental moment in the global effort to recognize the urgency of lead poisoning prevention, and delegates to the Fifth International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM5) in September 2023 unanimously agree to establish the Global Framework on Chemicals - For a planet free of harm and chemicals waste. 

This webinar aims to unpack the significance of all these actions, discuss the challenges that LMICs face in drafting and implementing the necessary laws to safeguard their communities and curb the damage from lead exposure. It also hopes to provide a knowledge-sharing opportunity for successful endeavors to be scaled up and emulated in various parts of the world.
