The Basel Accord: Risk Management (yes, I know: zzzzz)

I have a job interview to edit an on-line journal and am in WAY over my head in terms of the subject. Can someone explain what the Basel accord is, why it came to be and pretend I don't speak much English? All of the google stuff is just jargon...

The Basel Accord is intended to prevent countries from shipping their toxic waste to other countries for disposal. See Basel Action Network.
