Highlights for Tuesday, 18 September 2012
SAICM
ICCM-3 reconvened on Tuesday, 18 September in Nairobi, Kenya. In the morning, delegates met in plenary to continue discussions on emerging policy issues and addition of activities to the GPA. In the afternoon, delegates addressed financial and technical resources for implementation. The contact group on emerging policy issues resumed its discussions on lead in paint and chemicals in products. Delegates dealt swiftly with emerging policy issues and the addition of activities to the GPA, although there was some debate on managing perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) and the transition to safer alternatives.

The afternoon’s discussions on financial and technical resources discussed possible options for future funding arrangements, including the options under the UNEP ED’s report on possible long-term financing options for chemicals and wastes. An additional proposal was tabled to extend the QSP until a until a long-term financing solution is put into place. A contact group was established to further consider the issue.

The contact groups on emerging policy issues and on financial and technical resources met in the evening, and will report back to plenary on Wednesday, 19 September.
