About Knowledge Management

SAICM Knowledge Management activities are supported by the GEF 9771 project on Global Practices on Emerging Chemical Policy Issues of Concern under the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM).

Within this framework, the SAICM Secretariat explores ways to create, manage and disseminate knowledge on chemicals of concern. The implementation follows a Knowledge Management Strategy that is being constantly revised and updated. It explores different tools and processes to better manage knowledge cycles, aiming at interlinking knowledge from multiple stakeholders. Communities of practice have been established to support collaborative and innovative exchanges.
