The international community has developed a number of multilateral environmental agreements (MEA) including the Basel Convention, the Rotterdam Convention and the Stockholm Convention to improve the management of chemicals and minimize the harm caused by chemicals, especially toxic and hazardous chemicals. The paper provides an overview of MEAs and other international mechanisms of chemical management. It focuses on institutional aspects of toxic and hazardous chemical management and the prevention of environmental pollution in an attempt to help developing countries improve their chemical management systems and strengthen their capacity in environmental pollution prevention.
