Survey on stakeholders’ experience of the virtual working group process

On 16 June 2021, the SAICM secretariat launched a survey on stakeholders’ experiences of the virtual working group process conducted between October 2020 and February 2021 to support the intersessional process considering the Strategic Approach and sound management of chemicals and waste beyond 2020. The survey was closed on 16 July 2021.
