Highlights for Monday, 18 March 2013

3RThe 4th Regional 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) Forum in Asia opened in Hanoi, Viet Nam, on 18 March 2013, on the theme of “3Rs in the Context of Rio+20 Outcomes – The Future We Want.” The UN Centre for Regional Development (UNCRD), the Ministry of Environment (MoE), Japan, and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE), Viet Nam, jointly organized the meeting at the Calidas Landmark 72 Royal Residence Hanoi Hotel.

Nguyen Thien Nhan, Deputy Prime Minister of Viet Nam, opened the meeting, urging all delegates to contribute towards global efforts for sustainable development.

The keynote address by Prasad Modak, Environmental Management Centre, India, focused on 3Rs in the context of 21st century cities, highlighting that the private and informal sectors must be part of the solution, and "taming consumption" an ultimate goal.

Delegates from 25 countries in the Asia-Pacific region considered opportunities for 3R and resource-efficiency measures to contribute towards implementation of commitments from the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in June 2012. They addressed new and emerging issues in e-waste, chemicals and hazardous waste, and plastics in the coastal and marine environment. They also presented and discussed tools for green industry, which could be deployed in the quest for a resource-efficient and “zero waste” society.
