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.

Given the special arrangements for the twelfth meeting of the Open-ended Working Group as a result of the COVID-19 situation, Parties and others were subsequently requested to provide comments on the revised draft of the overall guidance document by 30 September 2020.

Parties and others are invited to submit their comments to Ms. Susan Wingfield (susan.wingfield@brsmeas.org) and Mr. Alexander Mangwiro (alexander.mangwiro@brsmeas.org).
