Africa Stockpiles Program, P1
The objective of this proposed long-term program is to clean-up Africa from stockpiles of obsolete pesticides, including POPs, and introduce the preventive measures that would ensure sustainability of the operation by preventing the creation of new stockpiles. This would be achieved through a phased program with clearly established criteria for eligible activities and verifiable benchmarks between phases, implemented through a "strategic partnership" similar to the one adopted for the Black Sea-Danube Nutrient Reduction Program. Partners would include the GEF, the World Bank, and other donors yet to be identified.August 2002 - WP inclusionAt time of work program inclusion, the "Black Sea / Danube" model has been abandoned. The project as presented is the first phase of a 15 year program to clean-up Africa from stockpiles of obsolete pesticides, including POPs, and introduce preventive measures that would ensure sustainability of the operation by preventing the creation of new stockpiles. This would be achieve through 4 overlapping phases (projects). Subsequent phases would be subject to assessment of progress and program performance during the previous phase, as well as availability of co-financing. In this first phase, the project would target 15 countries, including 7 countries for full clean-up, and 8 countries for preparatory activities leading to clean-up. The project would be overseen by a partnership including a large number of intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations. The main international partners with direct role in project execution are the WB, FAO and WWF.
