SAICM NGO Global Outreach Campaign:
Welcome to the SAICM (Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management) Global Outreach Campaign webpage!
The SAICM NGO Global Outreach Campaign aims to raise awareness about the harms of toxic chemicals, plus engage and broaden the base of civil society groups working on issues related to the implementation of the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM).
Recognizing that the SAICM provides an opportunity to advance NGO and Civil Society Organization campaigns related to protecting human and environmental health, a collective group of representatives from six international NGO networks active in the development and implementation of SAICM initiated the Global Outreach Campaign and the Common Statement, with the aim to collect over 1,000 NGO/CSO endorsements from more then 80 countries.
Important outputs of this campaign include the Educational Materials on SACIM, Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and Highly Hazardous Pesticides, as well as the Citizen's Report.
