International Assignments

Agency : UNCTAD, Geneva

I have done a project on behalf of UNCTAD on Hazardous Waste Management of Used Lead Acid Batteries in India. The study in the first phase has involved a short issues paper which takes stock of the Key Environmental and Economic problems of the automotive battery recycling industry in India, its adjustment needs in the light of the trade restrictions resulting from the Basel Convention ban on import of Scrap batteries.

At a UNCTAD conference on Trade, Investment and Environment in January 1999 at Jaipur, I have presented a paper on “The Basel Experience –Focus on Secondary Lead Recovery”.

In the second phase it is proposed to coordinate with the major stakeholders in order to improve restructuring of the secondary lead recovery industry., upgrading environmental and occupational and performance, and transfer of technology and skills
