The General Trust fund of the African Ministerial Conference on the Environment - Note by the Secretariat
United Nations Environment Programme

At its fourth session, in 1991, and taking into consideration the financial constraints that had hampered its activities, the African Ministerial Conference on the Environment decided to set up a general trust fund to ensure a sustainable financial basis for the Conference. The main objective of the fund was to provide financial support, wholly or partially, for the functioning of the organs of the Conference and the implementation of its activities. There is an urgent and increasing need for all member States to make their contributions, including clearing outstanding arrears, to the general trust fund in a timely manner and on a regular basis.

Axes of Thought for the High-level Segment - Third Conference of the Parties to the Bamako Convention on the Ban of the Import into Africa and the Control of Transboundary Movement and Management of Hazardous Wastes within Africa
United Nations Environment Programme, Bamako Convention

The theme of the Third Session of the Conference of the Parties to the Bamako Convention on the Ban of the Import into Africa and the Control of Transboundary Movement and Management of Hazardous Wastes within Africa (Bamako convention) is “From Decisions to Action: Working for Africa with a Safe Chemicals and Waste Future”. The theme of this meeting provides a formidable opportunity for the Ministers to exchange views, discuss and further explore ways and means to achieve this noble ambition. It is proposed that these discussions be hold in a format of roundtables structured around the two main pillars of the Bamako convention:
1. Preventing unwanted export to Africa of hazardous chemicals and waste from outside the continent.
2. Promoting sound management of waste produced within the continent.
