Technical Guidelines on Hazardous Waste from the Production and Use of Organic Solvents (Y6)
United Nations Environment Programme, Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements on Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal

These technical guidelines are principally meant to provide guidance to countries who are building their capacity to manage waste in an environmentally sound and efficient way and in their development of detailed procedures or waste management plan or strategy. They should not be used in isolation by the competent authorities for consenting to or rejecting a transboundary movement of hazardous waste, as they are not sufficiently comprehensive for environmentally sound management of hazardous waste and other waste as defined by the Basel Convention. These technical guidelines concern waste generated nationally and disposed of at the national level as well as waste imported as a result of a transboundary movement, or arising from the treatment of imported wastes.

International Environmental Law: Multilateral Environmental Agreements
Vietnam Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. Department of Legal Affairs

Vietnam’s measures to prevent environmental deterioration and to respond to climate change are increasingly driven by commitments under multilateral environmental agreements on the one hand and domestic needs on the other hand. This requires government officials to not only understand how to implement existing international commitments, but also how to contribute to the negotiation of new international commitments. As a prerequisite, a sound understanding of the development, features, functioning and implementation of multilateral environmental agreements is necessary. The purpose of this handbook is to give a general introduction to international environmental law as well as the most important and well-known multilateral environmental agreements that Vietnam is a Party to.
