A workshop took place to facilitate drafting of the regional monitoring reports under the first phase of the global monitoring plan for persistent organic pollutants. During this workshop important issues of concern have been discussed and relevant conclusions and recommendations adopted; guidance to the regional organization groups provided as requested, the regional approaches discussed and harmonized, and the cross-regional cooperation fostered. Drafting teams from all five UN Regions participated in the meeting.
Main outputs from the workshop are the initial drafts of the regional monitoring reports, work-plans and timetables to finalize the regional reports, as well as agenda proposed for the meeting of the global monitoring plan coordination group in November 2008. More details can be found in the workshop report.
