DescriptionThe objective of the project is to strengthen national capacity to manage persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and to assist countries in meeting their obligations under the Stockholm POPs Convention. The project will assist twelve pilot countries in developing a National Implementation Plan (NIP) for POPs management, thus enabling them to reduce and eventually eliminate their POPs emissions. These NIPs are expected to meet the initial reporting obligations of these countries towards the Convention. Generic and technical guidelines for the development of NIPs and the adoption of POPs management options will be developed based on the experience gained and the lessons learned in the pilot countries. These widely applicable guidelines and the experience gained will greatly facilitate the further development of NIPs in other countries. A large number of countries will participate in sub-regional consultations organised around the pilot countries, such that experience will be shared and other countries will be encouraged to sign and ratify the Convention and prepare their NIP.
