Abstract The chemical pollution crisis severely threatens human and environmental health globally. To tackle
this challenge the establishment of an overarching international science-policy body has recently been
suggested. We strongly support this initiative based on the awareness that humanity has already likely
left the safe operating space within planetary boundaries for novel entities including chemical
pollution. Immediate action is essential and needs to be informed by sound scientific knowledge and
data compiled and critically evaluated by an overarching science-policy interface body. Major
challenges for such a body are (i) to foster global knowledge production on exposure, impacts and
governance going beyond data-rich regions (e.g., Europe and North America), (ii) to cover the entirety
of hazardous chemicals, mixtures and wastes, (iii) to follow a one-health perspective considering the
risks posed by chemicals and waste on ecosystem and human health, (iv) and to strive for solutionoriented
assessments based on systems thinking. Based on multiple evidence on urgent action on a
global scale, we call scientists and practitioners to mobilize their scientific networks and to intensify
science-policy interaction with national governments to support the negotiations on the establishment
of an intergovernmental body based on scientific knowledge explaining the anticipated benefit for
human and environmental health.
