Stockholm Convention Training Tool on the Technical Guidelines for the Environmentally Sound Management (ESM) of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) wastes

Training Tool:  English

At its third meeting, the Conference of the Parties to the Stockholm Convention in its decision SC-3/7 requested the Secretariat, in cooperation with the Secretariat of the Basel Convention, to undertake, within available resources, training and other capacity-building activities to assist developing countries and countries with economies in transition in implementing the Technical guidelines for the Environmentally Sound Management of POPs wastes. In answer to this request, the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention has developed this interactive, electronic Training Tool.   In addition to being available on the website, the training tool has been sent out on CD ROMs to the Stockholm Convention Focal Points and the Basel Convention Focal Points for distribution to relevant persons. 

This electronic Training Tool provides information on the technical guidelines on POPs wastes in a simple and interactive manner. The target audience are persons involved in the management of POPs wastes that already have a basic knowledge on the subject.  These include handlers of hazardous chemical waste, treatment and destruction industries, owners of POPs wastes, relevant Government regulators and trainers on hazardous waste management.

In the future, training workshops will be held in developing countries and countries with economies in transition in order to support relevant personnel on the implementation of the technical guidelines on POPs wastes and to consider areas that require further work for managing and eliminating wastes.

The training tool is available in English, French and Spanish. Please choose your language below. We would appreciate if you could kindly complete the questionnaire after having done the training in order to provide us with feedback on the usefulness of the Training Tool.
