Persistent Organic Pollutants

Item #d99may59

The International Negotiating Committee (INC-2) for an International Legally Binding Instrument for Implementing International Action on Certain Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) held its second session in Nairobi, Kenya, Jan. 25-29, 1999, to consider an international agreement on twelve POPs (aldrin, chlordane, DDT, dieldrin, endrin, heptachlor, mirex, toxaphene, hexachlorobenzene, polychlorinated biphenyls, dioxins, and furans), which include several radiatively active gases and ozone depleters. The session resulted in an expanded outline of an agreement, completing preliminary discussions on how to reduce or eliminate POP releases. In addition, an initial consensus was reached on capacity-building activities that would require technical and financial assistance. A complete summary of this meeting is available at http://www.iisd.ca/linkages/vol15/enb1518e.html.
