The article highlights the second conference of parties on the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants held in Geneva, Switzerland. Financing remained a key issue with many countries stressing the need for adequate funds to be made available. Among the conclusions on financing was a invitation to developed countries and other parties, including relevant funding institutions, to provide information to the secretariat on ways that they can support the convention. Other areas of development included an agreement to look at how the secretariats of the Stockholm Convention, the Rotterdam Convention and Basel Convention could collaborate to achieve synergies and share expertise.
