Project 042: Chemical Safety and Security in the Central and Eastern African region

Context

Higher chemical production and use increase the probability of accidental releases during production, storage, transport, distribution, consumption and disposal of chemicals. Unexpected discharges may permanently damage soil, water and with strong adverse impacts on the environment, more and more pervasive, actually threatening human health. Accidental releases can also lead to emergencies such as fire or explosion.
It is essential for Africa to enhance capacity building for prevention and control of chemical hazard together with measures for reaction and recovery in case of accident.

Objectives

The overall objective is to enhance sound chemical hazard management within the ECA Region by strengthening the national “Chemical legal framework” in order to prevent the occurrence of accident inside and around all important chemical installations as well as to enhance Chemical preparedness and response capabilities.
