Synopsis

The Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions cooperate in the protection of human health and the environment from the negative effects of hazardous pollutants. This Environment and Gender Information (EGI) platform analysis 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.

See this factsheet for an overview of how gender is integrated within the BRS Conventions and how women’s participation is included in convention representation and planning.
