Summary
"There is increasing recognition among governments, NGOs and the public that human health and the environment are being compromised by the current arrangements for managing chemicals and hazardous wastes. These concerns take on a new level of urgency as the quantity and range of new and existing chemicals grow rapidly in developing countries and economies in transition. At the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002, governments agreed on "using and producing of chemicals in ways that do not lead to significant adverse effects on human health and the environment" and set a deadline of 2020 to acheive this goal. This commitment was reaffirmed at the Rio+20 Summit in Brazil in 2012. This report, Global Chemcials Outlook, compiled by UNEP in cooperation with international experts, is designed to inform governments and industry on trends in chemicals production, use and disposal, while offering policy advice aimed at meeting the 2020 goal. If focusses particularly on the challenges and opportunities facing developing nations." -- Foreword, page xiii
