Enabling Activities to Help Mexico Comply with the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs)

Project Summary

The main objective of the Project is the development of a National Implementation Plan (NIP) for Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), such that Mexico can meet its obligations to the Stockholm Convention. The following preliminary objectives will be achieved as the NIP is developed: a) strengthening of institutional capacity in relation to POPs, which will facilitate the formulation and implementation of the NIP; b) evaluation of baselines for inventories of POPs, contaminated sites and obsolete stockpiles; c) assessment of socio-economic impacts related to reduction of the use of POPs, and health-related impacts due to exposure to POPs; d) promotion of exchange between stakeholders to outline national strategy towards POPs; and e) formulation and endorsement of NIP.
