By their decisions BC IX/10, RC-4/11 and SC-4/34 (the “synergies decisions”) the respective conferences of the Parties to the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm conventions requested the secretariats of the three conventions to undertake specific activities to support the process of enhanced cooperation and coordination among the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm conventions . Furthermore, the omnibus decisions BC.Ex-1/1, RC.Ex-1/1, and SC.Ex-1/1, requested the Secretariats to develop a proposal for cross-cutting and joint activities that was reviewed and adopted by the three Conferences of the Parties at their ordinary meetings in 2011.
Since 2009, the Secretariats have planned and undertaken a number of activities as approved by subsequent meetings of the conferences of the parties. Information on historic activities are provided in this “Archive” section of the synergies website.
