Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) are organic chemical substances that persist in the environment, bioaccumulate .

Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) are organic chemical substances that persist in the environment, bioaccumulate through the food chain, and pose a risk of causing adverse effects to human health and the environment. POPs concentrate in living organisms through a process called bioaccumulation. The Stockholm Convention has a big impact on both chemical industry and other sectors which use certain hazardous substances (for example, flame retardants) in their articles and parts. Once a hazardous substance is added to Annex A, it will face a global ban. Companies must take measures to eliminate or substitute the hazardous substance in their products.

Persistent Organic Pollutants are transported across international boundaries far from their sources, even to regions where they have never been used or produced. The ecosystems and indigenous people of the Arctic are particularly at risk because of the long-range environmental transportation and bio-magnification of these substances. Consequently, persistent organic pollutants pose a threat to the environment and to human health all over the globe. International action on POPs

The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants was adopted by the Conference of Plenipotentiaries . As set out in Article 1, the objective of the Stockholm Convention is to protect human health and the environment from persistent organic pollutants.

The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants was adopted by the Conference of Plenipotentiaries on 22 May 2001 in Stockholm, Sweden. The Convention entered into force on 17 May 2004. Among others, the provisions of the Convention require each party to

This work analyzes the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) prepared under the auspices of the United Nations Environment Programme Chemical Division. The treaty was adopted at the Conference of Plenipotentiaries in Stockholm on 24 May 2001, and was open for signature at United Nations Headquarters in New York until 22 May 2002. It is the first international legal instrument to focus attention on the dangers of persistent organic pollutants - chemicals that are commonly used as pesticides in agriculture and to control insects causing diseases like malaria. At the same time, these chemical substances are carcinogenic, mutagenic, and teratogenic, posing grave risks to human and animal health and the environment. The treaty is a comprehensive global attempt to reduce the risks to human health and the environment from the release of these persistent organic pollutants, currently known as "the dirty dozen." This analysis: · Chronicles the Stockholm Convention negotiations, discusses the Stockholm treaty's intricacies and analyzes its thirty articles · Explains the fundamentals of POPs, their chemical properties, toxicology and common and/or historical uses· Discusses the history of POPs contamination, how the modern era of synthetic pesticide production began and its effect on today's world · Concentrates on the science and chemistry of the twelve chemicals addressed in the Stockholm Convention and examines the politics evolving around them · Provides explicit examples of the harmful effects that these chemicals have on human and animal populations and environment · Looks at the role of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in negotiating the treaty · Includes full text of the Stockholm Convention with annexes.
