SPREP Publications, Waste Management and Pollution Control
The Waigani Convention was conceived by our members to ensure we are protected from such dangers as the unfortunate case in Beirut. While we may net be importing large amounts of chemicals and hazardous wastes on our lives as well as environment. Two weeks ago, the world observed the first anniversary of the 2020 Beirut chemical explosion, one of the largest industrial accidents involving chemicals and hazardous waste.
