Global round table on PRTRs

7 - 8 November 2018

Salle VII, Palais des Nations Geneva, Switzerland


The third Global Round Table on PRTRs was held on 7 - 8 November 2018 in Geneva (Palais des Nations), back to back with the sixth meeting of the Working Group of the Parties to the Protocol on PRTRs (9 November 2018). The event was organised under the auspices of UNECE and OECD, in cooperation with UNITAR and UNEP. The round table took stock of successes and challenges in implementing the Protocol on PRTRs and establishing PRTR systems in different countries to date. The outcomes of the event will help to guide future activities towards implementation of new PRTRs and enhancement of existing PRTRs.

The provisional programme for the third Global Round Table on PRTRs can be found below. Other documents for the meeting, statements made during the meeting, and the meeting report will be uploaded on this webpage as they become available.
