National Baseline Survey of Paint Market in Peru
United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have established the joint initiative Global Alliance to Eliminate Lead Paint (Lead Paint Alliance) to prevent children’s exposure to lead from paints containing lead and to minimize occupational exposures to lead paints. The broad objective of the Alliance is to promote a phase-out of the manufacture and sale of paints containing lead and eventually eliminate the risks from such paint.
CER/Grupo GEA implements the Component 1 “Promoting regulatory and voluntary action by government and industry to phase out lead in paint” of the project Global Environment Facility (GEF) 9771: Global best practices on emerging chemicals policy issues of concern under the Strategic Approach to International Chemical Management (SAICM). Under the following UNEP project ID 516.1 SAICM-GEF 9771, CER/Grupo GEA executes the project during the period of January 2019 – June 2021.
The following document: National Baseline Survey of Paint Market, deliverable of Activity 1 is a result foreseen in the Project Cooperation Agreement (PCA) concluded between the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the non-governmental organization Grupo GEA in 2019.
