Regional Monitoring Projects in Latin America and the Caribbean (2008-2010)

According to article 16 of the Stockholm Convention on POPs, the Conference of the Parties has agreed on a Global Monitoring Plan (GMP) consisting of regional reports. In order to respond to request from developing countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, regional projects have been developed to strengthen their analytical capacity and to enable their contribution to the Global POPs Monitoring Plan on POPs. The projects will also build-up a network of POPs laboratories at global level.
