Chemicals are posing a serious risk to people's lives, particularly children in Africa.
To tackle this problem, more than 500 participants from 124 countries gathered in Nairobi, Kenya this week for a five-day meeting on global chemicals management.
The International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM3) has been organized under the auspices of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP).
