GMP under Stockholm Convention on POPs

The Stockholm Convention is a global treaty designed to restrict the production and use of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in order to protect human health and the environment from these chemicals. The global monitoring plan (GMP) of POPs was established to evaluate the effectiveness of the Stockholm Convention and to provide a comprehensive framework for the collection of monitoring data on POPs from all regions, compilation of the regional reports and the development of capacity-building activities.

For contribution to the sound management of chemicals and wastes at the global level, the sixth phase of the UNU-IAS Shimadzu Partnership project aims to produce the recommendation based on the project outcomes for the GMP under the Stockholm Convention on POPs. 

The monitoring data of PFOS and PFOA under the sixth phase from China, Korea, Philippines and Thailand have been added to the GMP of the Stockholm Convention Secretariat. The project activities and these approved data have been featured in the 2nd POPs Monitoring Report for Asia and Pacific
