Towards an ambitious global deal on chemicals

On 12 March, Minister for the Environment Karolina Skog invited a smaller group of countries, researchers and stakeholders to a high-level dialogue on how the countries of the world can handle chemicals and waste. Listen to some of the arguments in this video.

The spread of dangerous chemicals constitutes a major health risk at global level. Sweden wants to see a global agreement for chemicals, comparable to the Paris Agreement for the climate. Ms Skog's idea to form a coalition of like-minded countries to pursue an ambitious global deal was supported by all those who participated.
