A safer chemical policy framework can be built from the older chemical control policy framework by modifying some of the building blocks and adding sections on national goals and plans and government response. While there have been national goals and plans for clean water and climate change, there has never been a national goal or plan for chemicals. Adding together the elements of a safer chemical framework does not negate the value of government initiatives. A chemical conversion strategy could be greatly assisted with government responses such as regulations, economic incentives, technical assistance, government investments and surveillance, monitoring and evaluation.

Keywords:   National policy goals, national program plans, economic sector planning, government regulations, economic policy instruments, government technical assistance, government investments, government program evaluation
