Africa Institute, in collaboration with KemI and attended by Digby Wells Environmental Director, Lucy Stevens, conducted a series of workshops in 2021 and February 2023 to address the responsible management of chemicals in Africa. The workshops focused on:
– Managing chemical risks; and
– Enhancing the institutional framework for sound chemical management.

These workshops played a pivotal role in enabling participating African countries to enhance their capacity for environmentally sound chemical handling and advancement towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

Building on the success of these workshops, the Africa Institute in collaboration with KemI and Digby Wells Environmental will facilitate a further workshop with a focus on advancing legislative frameworks.
