Environmentally Sound Management and Disposal of POPs Pesticides and PCBs

Project Summary

The objective of this project is to enhance national technical/analytical capacity to address POPs problem and establish environmentally sound management system for disposal of POPs pesticides and PCBs. Based on the prioritization of the issues articulated in its National Implementation Plan, the Government of Nepal is putting major efforts to address the first three priorities mainly obsolete stocks of POPs pesticides, PCBs and public education/awareness. These issues require immediate attention due to obsolete stocks of pesticides lying badly stored in sensitive and vulnerable areas and PCBs are known to be widely dissipated in an open system in the urban and some rural areas.
