Training tool

Upon the request of the third and fourth meetings of the Conference of the Parties to the Stockholm Convention in their decisions SC-3/7 and SC-4/8, the Secretariat has initiated in cooperation with the Secretariat of the Basel Convention training and other capacity building activities to assist developing countries and countries with economies in transition in implementing the POPs waste guidelines. An electronic training tool  on the POPs wastes guidelines has been developed.

The training tool provides information on the technical guidelines on POPs wastes in a simple and interactive manner.

To further enhance the effectiveness of the training tool and to provide support to relevant personnel on POPs waste issues, regional workshops will be organised by the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention in 2009 and 2010.
