Swedish National Implementation Plan for the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants
The Stockholm Convention was formally adopted with the objective to protect human health and the environment from persistent organic pollutants. According to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, each Party to the Convention is to develop and endeavour to implement a plan for the implementation of its obligations under the Convention.
The fifth Swedish national implementation plan aims at describing what Sweden has done and intends to do to fulfil the obligations of the Stockholm Convention. The plan describes the situation in Sweden for persistent organic pollutants, identifies ongoing actions and presents strategies for future work. The plan contains updates in accordance with the decisions taken at the Conferences of the Parties in 2017 and 2019 regarding the addition of chemicals to the Convention.
