Overview of major impacts of climate change with potential links to hazardous chemicals and waste management
* Potential and scale of impact will be location specific, and in many cases can be mitigated by suitable adaptation responses Source: Physical climate risks from (IPCC, 2013b, 2014b, 2018a, 2019b). Potential links to hazardous chemicals and waste management synthesized by the authors of this document.
The BRS conventions and the Minamata Convention on Mercury have already launched another joint study on the “Interlinkages between the chemicals and waste multilateral environmental agreements and biodiversity: Key Insights”. The complete study will be released at the Conferences of the Parties to the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions (July 2021), and considered at the Conference of the Parties to the Minamata Convention (November 2021), as well as the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity convening to adopt the Global Biodiversity Framework, in late 2021.
