1 1 WSSD Global Partnership for Capacity Building to Implement the Globally Harmonized System of Chemical Classification and Labelling Objectives, Targets and Activities Protecting People and the Environment

2 2 1. Partnerships: CSD Criteria Based on Bali guidelines, further developed at CSD-11 –have concrete value addition to the implementation process and should be new - that is not merely reflect existing arrangements –based on predictable and sustained resources for their implementation, include mobilising new resources –designed and implemented in a transparent and accountable manner WSSD Global GHS Partnership

3 3 2. Partnership Objectives to implement GHS awareness raising activities at the regional and national levels to assist preparation of regional and national GHS-related situation analyses and capacity needs assessments to develop capacity building guidance and training materials on GHS strategy development and implementation to provide feedback to the ECOSOC SCEGHS, the CSD, the IOMC, and the IFCS on issues relevant to GHS capacity building WSSD Global GHS Partnership

5 5 4. Support of GHS Capacity Development at the Regional and Sub-regional Levels – Programme Area 1 Initial targets: –Regional and sub-regional GHS capacity needs assessments and GHS implementation scenarios prepared by 2004 –Regional GHS Awareness Raising Workshops organized in major regions by 2005 –Regional partner organizations identified and train-the- trainer workshops completed by 2005 WSSD Global GHS Partnership

6 Activities and Progress Made: –Agreement was reached and funds were mobilized for a first regional GHS workshop for the 14 countries of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) – to be held in Livingstone, Zambia in September 2003 (GTZ, IFCS, UNITAR) Plans for : –1 pledge was received to contribute financial resources for additional regional workshop in (ICCA) 4.

Support of GHS Capacity Development at the Country Level – Programme Area 2 Initial targets: –Pilot projects on GHS Action Plan Development completed in four countries by 2004 –Two pilot projects for GHS Action Plan Development per UN region completed and evaluated by 2005 –National GHS Action Plan projects initiated in the greatest possible number of countries, subject to the availability of resources ( ) WSSD Global GHS Partnership

8 Activities and Progress Made: –A number of countries have been engaged in developing national GHS action plans in the context of the UNITAR/ILO GHS capacity assistance (or affiliated) programmes, such as: Zambia is executing a two year ( ) project entitled: Developing and Implementing a National Action Plan for Chemical Hazard Communication and GHS Implementation South Africa is preparing the development of an implementation strategy for the GHS including on-the-ground training 5. Support of GHS Capacity Development at the Country Level – Programme Area 2 WSSD Global GHS Partnership

9 9 5. Support of GHS Capacity Development at the Country Level – Programme Area 2 Plans for : –Selection of additional project countries for GHS Action Plan development and implementation is planned for , resources permitting –A Programme Brochure outlining the Partnership in brief is available WSSD Global GHS Partnership
