Monitoring and Management of POPs in AsiaMonitoring of PFCs in Environmental Water in the Asian Region

Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are giving a wide range of health effects and posing a potential hazard to the environment surrounding us. For the purpose of establishing proper management of environmental contaminants based on scientific monitoring procedures, focusing on the hydrosphere, UNU has initiatives geared towards strengthening of research and support of higher education for POPs that are regulated by the Stockholm Convention, particularly of developing countries in the Asia pacific region. Having completed 18 years in six phases, in the period of three years for each phase, the project has completed the sixth stage.

In Phase VI project, perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) especially PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid), PFOS (perfluorooctanesulfonic acid) and its salts fluoride (PFOS-F) in environmental waters of Asian countries were focused to strengthen and encourage efforts to reduce these chemicals. This flyer focuses on the summary of Phase VI project activities.
