Reducing pollution from harmful chemicals in Morocco: SCP/RAC is looking for a national expert/consultant with knowledge of chemical management

11 Agosto 2021 | Actualizado: 20 Agosto 2021

The Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC) is seeking a national expert/consultancy based in Morocco with knowledge of chemicals management to provide technical assistance on the implementation of prevention approaches for 3 new POPs (PFAs, HBCD, SCCP).  

The objective of the expert’s mission will be to provide technical assistance to achieve the practical replacement of these 3 new POPs, listed in Annex A of the Stockholm Convention, through the adoption of environmentally sound alternatives in Morocco. 

The selected expert will support SCP/RAC in the implementation process of the inventorying, sampling and substitution of these chemicals with safe alternatives. The expert will also be involved in specific activities, aiming at raising awareness on the work undertaken, such as the organization of a seminar and the development of an awareness campaign.  

This consultancy takes place in the framework of the 'Mediterranean Sea Program' (MedProgramme) funded by the GEF, in which SCP/RAC is mainly involved in the implementation of component 1 - Reduction of Land Based Pollution in Priority Coastal Hotspots and Measuring Progress to Impacts. 

The duration of this first consultancy is estimated until September 2022

  • In the framework of the MedProgramme, SCP/RAC has proposed an innovative approach to tackle the issue of toxic chemicals based on preventing the use of toxic substances identified as country priorities in order to avoid the generation of hazardous waste whose end-of-life management is very costly
