The objective of the Special Session was to discuss the status of 3R policy implementation, including resource efficiency related scientific research and developments, in Asia-Pacific region. It also aimed to share new information on policies for 3R and waste management in Malaysia and India, among others, in order to strengthen the on-going assessment on the State of the 3Rs in Asia and the Pacific Report. As per the findings from the last seven Regional 3R Forums, while some countries have made progress in advancing institutions and governance mechanisms for the implementation of 3R policies and programmes, a conventional style of governance prevails. While the responsibility for the 3Rs often resides within environmental agencies, the responsibility and commitment of other government agencies is not always at its full potential.
