The Global Environment Facility (GEF) has approved the concept for the SAICM project on Global best practices on emerging chemical policy issues of concern under the SAICM. As an output of the project, a knowledge management platform will be developed in line with the needs identified in the SAICM Overall Orientation and Guidance.
Results of the survey will be used by the SAICM secretariat to gather baseline information and assess stakeholder needs in the design of the future platform.

The survey is anonymous and should not take any longer than 8 minutes. We appreciate your time in filling out the survey.
