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.
