Importance of the Centre for the Implementation of the Basel Conventions Objectives Basel Convention requires the establishment of Regional Centers for Training and Technology Transfer (Art. 14). Training, Technology Transfer, Information, Consulting, Awareness Raising They are designated to serve as facilitator for the Parties in their regions in the implementation of the Convention, specifically through:

The 6th COP has resulted in, among others, a request to the SBC to cooperately with the Parties, the BCRCs and other stakeholders in the development and implementation of activities contained in the Strategic Plan for which financial support is agreed upon by the Parties. In addition, The 7th Conference of Parties mentioned the important involvement of BCRCs, among others, by inviting them to review waste streams of concern in their region and identify priority waste stream(s) for reduction initiatives in partnership with stakeholders in the region. Those indicate the importance of the role of BCRCs in facilitating the implementation of Basel Convention at the regional level.

BCRC for Southeast Asia is one of the BCRCs which has been established to serve the Parties to the Basel Convention in the Southeast Asian region. Basically, the Parties served are mostly developing countries and members of ASEAN. The Centre is hosted by the Republic of Indonesia, one of the leading countries forming the ASEAN. BCRC-SEA can operate in parallel to ASEAN in facilitating and promoting cooperation among the member countries. Therefore, the Centre should also have an important role as partner to the ASEAN Secretariat in promoting regional cooperation among the members of ASEAN in environmental management, particularly in the control of transboundary movement of hazardous waste (implementing Basel Convention). Moreover, BCRC-SEA may extend its role in developing and promoting regional network in the environmentally sound management of hazardous waste together with other regional institutions, such as WHO-SEARO, UNEP-REAP, etc. During the last two years of its operation, BCRC-SEA has actively provided technical assitance, training, and technical guidelines for some areas of hazardous waste management with the consideration of the region specific characteristics in the context of implementing the Basel Convention. 7. BCRC-SEAs Objectives Provide services for implementation of the Basel Convention to the Parties/South East Asia Countries. Develop and conduct training programs, workshops, seminars and associated projects in the field of the environmentally sound management of hazardous wastes, transfer of environmentally sound technology and minimization of the generation of hazardous wastes with specific emphasis on training the trainers and the promotion of ratification and implementation of the Basel Convention and its instruments.
