The Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP), negotiated under the auspice of United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), aims at limiting and, as far as possible, gradually reducing and preventing air pollution including long-range transboundary air pollution. More on LRTAP Convention. The Aarhus Protocol targets more specifically persistent organic pollutants. More on Aarhus Protocol.
The Secretariat cooperates, collaborates and exchanges information with UNECE on matters related to the Aarhus Protocol and releases of persistent organic pollutants.
