IPEN focuses on mobilizing resources for NGO activities in developing countries and countries with economies in transition. IPEN has established 8 regional hubs working the regional languages to promote the implementation of IPEN's international projects. IPEN's international projects aim to build NGO capacity, raise both NGO and public awareness on chemical issue, generate new data and information about chemicals in the environment and communities, promote the development and implementation of national sound chemicals management regimes and/or highlight contaminated sites (ie hot spots) that harm communities and destroy natural resources.
