Adequate supplies of clean water are vital for human health and development. But an important obstacle to achieving water supply and sanitation goals in many countries has been the failure to adequately address financial issues: the costs of achieving goals; how those costs could be minimised; and the challenge of matching costs with available resources. The need for a fresh approach has become evident, for example, as central
This document provides guidance on the residue analytical methods. Analytical methods are used to generate the data for estimating dietary exposure assessments, to establish Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs), and to determine processing factors.

Climate change is already being observed through rising temperatures, melting glaciers, shifting rain patterns, increased storm intensity and rising sea levels. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from human activities – mainly fossil fuel use, deforestation and agriculture – cause climate change. If GHG emissions are not reduced to significantly below current levels within the next few decades, there will be further warming and sea-level
The main electronic tool for data submission, evaluation and exchange used in the OECD Cooperative Chemicals Assessment Programme is the International Uniform Chemical Information Database (IUCLID). IUCLID is a software program for the administration of data on chemical substances.
The OECD Harmonised Templates are standard data formats for reporting reults of studies with chemicals in order to determine their properties and effects on human health and the environment.
