Global round table on PRTRs

19 November 2013

Geneva, Switzerland

The Global Round Table on PRTRs was held on 19 November 2013 in  Geneva (Palais des Nations, Salle VII), and back to back with the third meeting of the Working Group of the Parties to the Protocol on PRTRs (20-21 November 2013). The event was organised under the auspices of UNECE and OECD, in cooperation with UNITAR. The round table took stock of successes and challenges in implementing the PRTR Protocol and PRTRs systems to date in order to create a snapshot which can guide future activities towards implementation of new PRTRs, and enhancements to existing PRTRs. For further information please check the latest press release.

Documents
Documents for the meeting, statements made during the meeting, and the meeting report are being uploaded on this webpage as they become available.

Survey
Pollutant Release and Transfer Registers online Survey, November 2013.

This survey was jointly prepared by OECD, UNECE and UNITAR and open to participants and other interested public. Preliminary outcomes of the survey were presented at the Global round table event. Final results can be used to help the PRTR community in planning and implementation of future activities.

In the Document section below, you will find a pdf-file of the survey's summery, a table with the raw data from survey results in order to allow you to make use of the data, and powerpoint slides with graphics of results for each question.
