Women’s participation and gender considerations in country representation, planning and reporting to the BRS Conventions
The Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions cooperate in the protection of human health and the environment from the negative effects of hazardous pollutants. This EGI factsheet explores how women are represented as delegates to the Conferences of the Parties (COPs), members and observers of Conventions’ Subsidiary Bodies, and national focal points. It also investigates how gender equality considerations are included in Parties’ reporting mechanisms to the BRS Conventions, including initial National Implementation Plans (NIPs) to the Stockholm Convention and the most recent National Reports to the Basel and Stockholm Conventions. The study also explores how gender considerations are included in the Rotterdam Prior Informed Consent (PIC) Circular.
