Duties and Responsibilities
The Secretariat of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions (BRS Secretariat) brings together the three leading multilateral environmental agreements that share the common objective of protecting human health and the environment from hazardous chemicals and wastes. Practical manuals, guidance documents and factsheets (an “ESM Toolkit”) were developed by an expert working group on environmentally sound management between 2013 and 2019. Many of these tools were adopted by the Conference of the Parties to the Basel Convention and the Secretariat was asked to disseminate them widely. Funding has now come available to facilitate the retention of an individual contractor to revamp the layout and graphic design of the tools in the ESM Toolkit for dissemination to and use by Parties and stakeholders to the Convention. The Basel Convention Plastic Waste Partnership (PWP) was established by the Conferences of the Parties to promote the environmentally sound management of plastic waste. The Partnership implements through its project groups activities on plastic waste prevention and minimization, recycling, transboundary movements and education and outreach. The Secretariat facilitates these activities by collecting data, information, best practices and lessons learned, preparing analysis reports, and so forth. An individual contractor is needed to develop the layout and graphic design (including infographics, illustrations, icons) of the ESM Toolkit and reports developed by the project groups of the Plastic Waste Partnership.
