The Basel Convention is an international treaty designed to reduce the movements of hazardous waste between nations, and specifically to prevent transfer of hazardous waste from developed to less developed countries. This introduction of the film shows the need for co-operation between countries to enforce the compliance with the Convention. I made this film for the European association IMPEL. Music is made by Herman Witkam, voice over is spoken by Michael Harrigan. Many thanks to Basel Action Network and the British ITV for the use of pictures and footage.
