The Chemical Industry and the United Nations

I used to work as a chemical engineer at the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UN-ECE), in the Enterprise Development Section of the Trade Division.

I was responsible for two projects, which are described in the UN-ECE Chemical Industry pages; but I was also in charge of all the Web pages of the Section, which I encourage you to visit.

The following links might help you better understand my work, as well as that of other UN bodies related to chemicals.
