||This guide proposes priority areas for development cooperation concerning hazardous chemicals. It applies to all types of chemicals and their products throughout their life cycle, from manufacture or import through handling and use to disposal. It mentions the operating procedures of aid agencies and tells how assistance related to chemicals management can be included in aid programmes and project selection procedures. It describes the types and design of projects most likely to increase the capability of recipient countries to manage chemicals, and deals with the assessment procedures needed to ensure that project proposals are screened for potential adverse effects from chemicals.
