UNCRD has collaborated with Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), under the support of the Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MOEJ), to conduct experts' assessment for the Hanoi 3R Goals (2013-2023), adopted in the 4th Regional 3R Forum in Asia in Hanoi, Viet Nam, in March 2013.

The overall objective of State of the 3Rs in Asia and the Pacific Project is to assist member countries of the Regional 3R Forum in Asia and the Pacific to analyze the 3R progress for Hanoi 3R Goals (2013-2023), adopted in the 4th Regional 3R Forum in Asia in Hanoi, Viet Nam, in March 2013. This assessment is intended to support member countries for national 3R policy and strategy formulation through monitoring 3R policy progress and drafting an experts' assessment report, State of the 3Rs in Asia and the Pacific. It also aims to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by providing information on progress associated with the 3R policy indicators in the region.

  2. To compile data-relevant information aimed at monitoring progress of 3R policy implementation in the region in relation to the Ha Noi 3R Declaration (2013-2023);
  3. To contribute to the Regional 3R Forum in Asia and the Pacific by providing science-based advice on existing and future challenges and opportunities, including those on business, socioeconomic and sociocultural aspects of the 3Rs, for effective 3R implementation in the region.
