Concept Note
Background

The Secretariat of the Rotterdam Convention received an official request for technical assistance from the State Agency on Environment Protection and Forestry (SAEPF) of the Kyrgyz Republic on 16.01.2015 to:




  • raise awareness on the benefits of this Convention at national level;

  • present the ratification process

  • integrate RC in the national pesticide management programme;

  • build capacity of the institutions and persons directly involved with the implementation of the Convention;

  • get more familiar to Basel, Rotterdam, and Stockholm Conventions and their synergy approach.

Upon additional consultations, it was agreed that the sub-regional consultation would take place in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan from 16-18 November, 2015 under the following title: Sub-regional consultation on the implementation of the Rotterdam Convention in synergy with Basel and Stockholm Conventions: An integrated approach to pesticides and chemicals management at national and regional level.

This request is a follow up to the work that has been done in Kyrgyzstan and in Central Asia under the umbrella of the project: Improving capacities to eliminate and prevent recurrence of obsolete pesticides as a model for tackling unused hazardous chemicals in the former Soviet Union” GCP/RER/040/EC.
A socio economic component of the above EC project has been implemented by Rotterdam Convention Secretariat and PAN UK covering activities related to the identification of high risk practices, pesticide exposure scenarios, particularly vulnerable groups, and awareness raising activities with a focus on family farmers, who are key in protecting human health and the environment while sustainably intensifying agricultural production.

It was decided that the consultation would be part of a strategy of intervention in Central Asia with the further involvement of other neighbouring countries that are still not Parties to the Convention or that have difficulties in the implementation of the Convention. In the table Parties that have been invited at the Consultation are listed with specific reference at the ratifications of the three Conventions:

Kyrgyzstan has the highest number of Import Responses and Notifications of Final Regulatory Action submitted to the Secretariat in terms of implementation of the Rotterdam Convention. In addition it is party to the Basel and Stockholm Conventions as well. Considering this, it will be very useful in sharing experience with the ratification and with the implementation of the Rotterdam Convention with the other countries.

Tajikistan has deposited its signature to the Convention on 28/09/1998 but is still not a Party, since it has not ratified, accepted, approved or accessed to the Convention (focus ratification = becoming a Party to the Rotterdam Convention). In addition the country is not Party to Basel Convention as well, but it is Party only to the Stockholm Convention.
Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan are only Parties to the Basel Convention (focus ratification = becoming a Parties to the Rotterdam Convention)
Participants

Participants will be identified with the help of CAREC KG which has established network in the region among the countries that are invited. Participants will be government officials and national designated authorities and focal points to the other two Conventions. In addition, NGOs working on lifecycle of pesticides human health and environmental will also be invited. Finally, national representatives responsible for the process of ratification of the conventions and international agreements will be invited.


Objectives of the workshop

The main objective of the workshop is to strengthen the national capacities of Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan to fully implement the obligations under the Rotterdam Convention, emphasizing the cross-cutting aspects with Basel and Stockholm Conventions at the national and regional level. Thus, only these 2 countries are Parties of all 3 Conventions, whereas Tajikistan is only party to Stockholm and Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan to Basel Convention. For this reason, the consultation will introduce the ratification process.

It will also aim to raise the awareness of government authorities and regulators about the risks of hazardous pesticides and chemicals and the availability of alternatives in particular concerning pesticides.
The following provisions of the Rotterdam Convention will be addressed and emphasized:
- Submission of Notifications of Final Regulatory Actions: Follow–up letter request 2 (a) (b) and (c) and decision RC-7/1: Proposal for activities to increase notifications of final regulatory actions:


  • Practical hands on training on filling a Notification form using the prior-submitted list of banned or restricted pesticides in Kyrgyzstan or Kazakhstan

  • Emphasis on Annex II criteria in cases where the notifying country had used a risk evaluation from another country, multilateral environmental agreement or international body for bridging information to establish a final regulatory action

- Information Exchange (Articles 11, 12 and 14): Follow-up letter request 3 and decision RC-7/2


- Submission of Proposals for Severely hazardous pesticides – both Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan are economies in transition. Although they have received technical activities in multiple occasions in the past they have not yet submitted SHPF proposals:


  • Discuss and consult on the capacity in the countries to monitor the health and environmental impacts of pesticides. For example, whether they have established active poison control centres, incident reporting mechanisms for pesticide poisonings or any environmental monitoring of pesticide impacts.

  • Present results from the experience with the monitoring and collecting data on vulnerable groups at level of farmers and have Kyrgyzstan to share this experience with the neighbouring countries.

-Submission of Importing Responses:




  • To explain the advantages of submission of the IRs trough Prior Informed Consent (PIC) Procedure and information exchange with other Parties of the Convention for the Annex III listed chemicals

  • Direct work with the DNA of Kazakhstan on filling a form

-Synergy among the three Conventions


The 3 Conventions common objective is to protect human health and environment, and they offer multifaceted framework for a lifecycle approach to management of hazardous substances: from their production, trough trade and use until their disposal. The connecting niches for the three conventions are Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), as 12 of the POPs under Stockholm Conventions are also subject to Rotterdam Convention, and all pesticides and other chemicals will be subject to Basel Convention for disposal.
For this reason the consultation will try to identify opportunities to integrate the work of the Rotterdam Convention with ongoing national activities on the implementation of the Stockholm and Basel Conventions. The Secretariat will present the linkages between the Rotterdam, Basel and Stockholm Conventions and opportunities for an integrated approach to the implementation at national level and sub-regional level.
Participants will be encouraged to actively participate to brainstorm on opportunities to integrate the work of the Rotterdam Convention with ongoing activities on the Basel and Stockholm Conventions at national level, in order to improve pesticides management and strengthen the national decision making.

  • Analysis of gaps and needs for the implementation of the three Convention and identification of actions at national and sub-regional level


Results
At the end of the meeting it is expected that all participants have a clear idea of the benefits of three Conventions and that have a better knowledge on obligations and future opportunities for improving their pesticides management at national level.
Participants from each country will return with identified key action during the discussion with the other stakeholders, these actions should aim at completing the ratification process and fulfilling the obligations under the Conventions.
Another results will be to have established an initial contact at national and sub-regional level among the most relevant stakeholders in pesticides and chemicals management and in order to set the scene for follow up activities.

Several follow up activities will be identified by key stakeholders and initial funds will be allocated as seed money.


ANNEX I
FAO Strategic Objectives and Country Programming Framework context
Kyrgyzstan (CPF summary (2012 – 2015)
CPF Priority Area 3: Pest control services and crop diversification. Crops currently make up 54% of the value of agricultural production in Kyrgyzstan. The sector has the potential to be a source of productivity and income growth. However, the sector suffers from a number of constraints, some of which can be addressed through public services. In this regard FAO may provide technical assistance in diversification of crop and farming system; strengthening capacity on pesticide quality control and registration; support to low income and Female-Headed- Households; reduction the risks to health and environment from obsolete pesticide stockpiles; development of seed industry in general and formulation of the National Seed Sector Development Programme particularly.

Recommendations to the Secretariat

Kazakhstan

  • Facilitate the process to nominate the Designated National Authority (DNA) and inform the Secretariat

  • Official appointment of Designated National Authorities on behalf of Waste Energy Department of Ministry of Energy of Kazakhstan and informing the Secretariat following the official nomination procedure

  • Co-ordinate, with other state agencies, the identification of the list of pesticides that are banned (or the list of pesticides that are allowed) in Kazakhstan. The list of banned pesticides as such is updated and approved every 10 years, the current list will be relevant till 2022

  • Exchange list of used pesticides with the Ministry of Health and Veterinary

  • Preparation of importing response for 33 pesticides and severely hazardous formulations, and submit them to the Secretariat

  • To facilitate the sharing of experience with Kyrgyzstan since they have a lot of work done on repackaging, safe handling etc.

  • Continue capacity building to implement the BRS Conventions obligations and benefits, on how to raise awareness at the national level on the Basel Convention in particular.

  • Following the same line, requests the secretariat to consider providing financial and technical assistance for the implementation of measures aimed at solving regional problems / obligations under the Rotterdam, Stockholm and Basel conventions.
