The National Implementation Plan will describe how the Dominican Republic will fulfill its obligations under the Convention to eliminate or reduce POP releases into the environment and carry out environmentally sound management of stockpiles of POPs-containing wastes and contaminated sites that pose high risks for health and the environment, with a regional perspective.
