Delegates gather for a second week of discussions at the BRS Conventions COPs

BRS | BC COP-12 | RC COP-7 | SC COP-7 The meetings of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm (BRS) Conferences of the Parties (COPs) continued on Monday, 11 May. In the morning, plenary heard reports from contact groups on: legal matters under the Basel Convention (BC); BC technical matters; technical assistance and financial resources; and cooperation and coordination. BC COP12 discussed matters related to the implementation of the convention, while contact groups on BC technical matters and budget also met in the morning.

As the contact groups on cooperation and coordination, BC technical matters, and technical assistance and financial resources continued their work over lunch, side events explored combating illegal traffic under the BC, and outcomes and outlook for the Partnership for Action on Computing Equipment.

In the afternoon, plenary was suspended to allow delegates to work in contact groups on: BC technical matters, BC legal matters and budget. Other contact groups worked in the evening on Stockholm Convention compliance, BC strategic matters and coordination and cooperation.

Side events were held in the evening on: the first global e-waste monitor and the specific situation in the Latin American region; and ratification and early implementation of the Minamata Convention and the BC Amendment.
