ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a meeting participated by governments to discuss practical measures being taken to remove chemicals listed under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutant (Pops) from the environment held in Geneva, Switzerland. The convention targets 12 hazardous pesticides and industrial chemicals that have a negative impact on human health and the environment. The European Union requested for more substances to be added to the existing list of chemicals covered by the convention. The event also provided delegations with a chance to see what governments have achieved in developing National Implementation Plans. INSET: PARTIES LOOK AT FINANCING.
