New Strategic Framework

The ninth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Basel Convention decided (decision IX/3) that a new Strategic Framework for the implementation of the Convention was required for a 10-year period so that the Convention could promote the environmentally sound management of waste and play a decisive role in highlighting the links between waste management and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals and human health and livelihood. Pending adoption of the new Strategic Framework, the current Strategic Plan continues to be implemented.
