Overall outcomes of the effectiveness evaluation

1. The second effectiveness evaluation report assesses, in accordance with the framework for effectiveness evaluation, whether the Convention has succeeded in achieving its objective of protecting human health and the environment from persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and identifies ways to improve the effectiveness of the Convention. The report highlights the progress made since the first evaluation (EE-1), reviews the implementation of the recommendations made in the first effectiveness evaluation report, and makes recommendations to further strengthen the effectiveness of the Convention.

2. The Convention provides an effective and dynamic framework to regulate POPs throughout their lifecycle, addressing the production, use, import, export, releases, and disposal of these chemicals worldwide. This report notes progress that has occurred since the first evaluation but highlights that there continues to be on-going issues that are hindering the full implementation of the Convention.
