Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) - National Implementation Plan

The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) was established with the awareness that these pollutants form an increasing threat to human wellbeing as well as the environment. An international assessment process was undertaken on initiative of UNEP starting in 1995 and furthermore the convention was adopted and opened for signature in 2001 and entered into force in 2004.

The National Implementation Plan (NIP) is established through the Stockholm Convention. The requirement of the signing parties is to prepare a plan on how to implement the obligations of the convention and furthermore make efforts of putting the plan into operation.
