Rumusan : The 1992 United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Convention on the Transboundary Effects of Industrial Accidents is designed to protect people and the environment against the devastating effects of industrial accidents by preventing accidents from occurring, or by reducing their frequency and severity and by mitigating their effects if necessary. The Convention also applies to industrial accidents triggered by natural disasters, such as floods, landslides or earthquakes. The Convention entered into force in 2000 and presently has 41 Parties.1 Transboundary cooperation to prevent accidents Effective transboundary cooperation at the international level and, more importantly, between neighboring States is of utmost importance – not only to respond to industrial accidents but also to prevent them and to be prepared for rendering an effective response, if needed. The Convention focusses in particular on transboundary cooperation for industrial accident prevention, preparedness and response. As such, the Convention promotes active international cooperation between countries, before, during and after an industrial accident, and encourages its Parties to help each other in the event of an accident, to cooperate on research and development and to share information and technology.
