Informal Group

Membership in the Informal Group on household waste is open to Parties and other stakeholders. Several Parties, inter-governmental organizations, regional centers of the Basel Convention and the Stockholm Convention, industry associations and non-governmental organizations have indicated their interest to participate as member or observer in the informal group.

The Informal Group agreed on a draft concept note as the basis for the development of a work plan on the environmentally sound management of household waste and a concept for a partnership to assist municipalities. The group is proposing the establishment of a household waste partnership under the Basel Convention on the basis of the draft concept note.
