Polychlorinated dibenzo-para-dioxins (PCDD) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDF) are two of the twelve initial POPs included in the Stockholm Convention. In its decision 19/13 C of February 7, 1997, the Governing Council requested that UNEP develop and share information, among others, on sources of and management strategies for PCDD/PCDF. This WebPage provides information as to the capacity building programme of Chemicals Branch to assist countries in this area.
