Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal, 1989.
The Convention is aimed at controlling the transboundary movements of hazardous wastes and their disposal. On occasion, countries have allowed other countries or industries to dump their hazardous waste by charging them a significant amount of money. These short-term economic gains can have a serious adverse effect on the environment and quality of life of a country.
