A committee of practitioners to help a multi-stakeholder integration and collaboration for realize sound and sustainable chemical management in Ethiopia was formed at the workshop.

This workshop aimed at bringing government regulatory bodies, Civil Society Organization (CSOs), Private sector, and other concerned bodies to promote a formalized and systematic multi-stakeholder involvement for the implementation of the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) and 11 core elements in its Overall Orientation Guidance (OOG).

The Objective of the workshop was to identify possible ways of working together to alleviate negative environmental impacts of improper chemicals management and discuss the possibility of forming national multi-stakeholder fora that can coordinate pathways for efficient national chemicals management.

If you are a private sector actor, a member of an NGO, research institution, or government agency that works with concern for chemicals management we kindly request you to join our community of practitioners. This committee has established a group line of communication and plans to meet regularly. Request to join the initiative can be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots.
