Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal
The Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal is a comprehensive global environmental agreement on hazardous and other wastes. Activities on prevention and combatting illegal traffic in environmentally-sensitive commodities through the Green Customs Initiative are an example of collaboration.
Global Environment Facility

The GEF helps the countries with economies in transition to phase out their use of ozone-destroying chemicals under the terms of the Montreal Protocol. GEF support has moved from separate Chemicals Focal Areas (ODS and Persistent Organic Pollutants) to having one, fully integrated Chemicals and Waste Focal Area, including POPs, Mercury, ODS, and the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management.
Rotterdam Convention on Prior Informed Consent
The Rotterdam Convention, in force since 2004, covers the international trade of certain hazardous chemicals, based on the concept of "prior informed consent" (PIC) of the receiving country. The Secretariat cooperates, collaborates, and exchanges information with the Ozone Secretariat on various matters of common interest.
Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants
The Stockholm Convention is a global treaty to protect human health and the environment from persistent organic pollutants (POPs). POPs are chemicals that remain intact in the environment for long periods, become widely distributed geographically and are toxic to humans and wildlife. Collaboration was established within the framework of the international ODS and POPs initiative.  
Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management
The Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) is a policy framework to promote chemical safety around the world. SAICM's overall objective is the achievement of the sound management of chemicals throughout their life cycle so that by the year 2020, chemicals are produced and used in ways that minimize significant adverse impacts on the environment and human health.
UN Environment - Chemicals and waste
UN Environment Chemicals and Waste and its partners work towards the goal of the World Summit on Sustainable Development to minimize the adverse effects of chemicals and waste on human health and the environment.
United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
