Enabling Activities for the development of a National Implementation Plan as a first step to implement the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in Swaziland

Swaziland faces a requirement to meet the obligations of the Stockholm Convention and to manage the reduction/elimination of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) within the overreaching framework of the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) adopted by the international community in February 2006.
The project aims at introducing enabling activities that will allow Swaziland to develop a National Implementation Plan as a first step to implement the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in the country.
The objective of this Enabling Activities proposal is to strengthen national capacity to enhance knowledge and understanding amongst decision makers, managers, the industry, the academia, the green NGOs and the public at large on POPs to develop and formulate a National Implementation Plan (NIP) purusant to Article 7 of the Stockholm Convention.
