The Chemicals and Health Branch of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) work closely with governments, industry, and civil society organizations around the world to develop mainstream solutions for the sound management of chemicals and waste.

Chemicals and waste are integral to almost all sectors of society, bringing important benefits in areas from medicine and agriculture to consumer goods, clean technologies and poverty alleviation. While chemicals and waste are major contributors to world economies, their sound management is essential to avoiding risks to human health and ecosystems and substantial costs to national economies.
