Conceived as a firm basis for more extensive work in the second phase of the project, the goal of the Preliminary Global Outlook was not to explore each of the three broad themes in depth, but rather to identify promising avenues for further scientifically-based assessments and economic arguments for policy actions largely using existing knowledge and available data.
The objective of the preliminary report was to further mobilize support and attract interest from governments, private sector, civil society, academia and scientific societies to join this effort to demonstrate that we have, today, the human and technical capacity to translate the sound management of chemicals from an abstract concept to a concrete reality.
