The 15th meeting of the COP to the Basel Convention, the tenth meeting of the COP to the Rotterdam Convention and the tenth meeting of the COP to the Stockholm Convention will convene in a virtual format in 2021 and as an in-person event in 2022. The theme of the meetings will be “Global Agreements for a Healthy Planet: Sound management of chemicals and waste”.
In February 2021, the bureaux of the conferences of the Parties to the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm conventions decided the originally scheduled triple-COP event, from 19-30 July 2021, could not take place as an in-person meeting due to the ongoing global pandemic.
An online segment will take place from 26-30 July 2021. A face-to-face segment will be held over two weeks in 2022, and is tentatively expected to take place in June 2022 in Geneva.
