Overall Guidance Document on the Environmentally Sound Management of Household Waste

By its decision BC-14/19, the fourteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Basel Convention in May 2019 requested the Household Waste Partnership Working Group to prepare a complete draft of the overall guidance document on the environmentally sound management of household waste, taking into account the discussions at the meeting and the comments that had been received thus far, and taking into careful consideration the existing guidance under the Basel Convention, in particular on environmentally sound management. Parties and others were invited to provide comments by 31 January 2020 on the draft document to enable the Working Group to prepare a revised draft of the overall guidance document, taking into account the comments, for consideration by the twelfth meeting of the Open-ended Working Group.

At its online segment, the Open-ended Working Group invited Parties and observers to provide comments on the revised draft overall guidance document on the environmentally sound management of household waste (UNEP/CHW/OEWG.12/INF/29, annex) by 15 October 2020 and for the Secretariat, in consultation with the Partnership working group, to revise the guidance document based on the comments received for submission to the Conference of the Parties at the face-to-face segment of its fifteenth meeting (UNEP/CHW.15/18/Add.1). During the resumed twelfth meeting of the Open-ended Working Group, Parties and observers were requested to submit, by 13 May 2022, comments on the revised draft overall guidance document on the environmentally sound management of household waste as set out in the annex to document UNEP/CHW/OEWG.12/INF/29/Rev.1.

Parties and others are invited to submit their comments to Ms. Susan Wingfield (susan.wingfield@un.org) and Mr. Jost Dittkrist (jost.dittkrist@un.org).
