Country situation report on POPs in Argentina.
This report describes and assesses the country situation in Argentina with respect to POPs and Stockholm Convention implementation. Topics covered include: a description of POPs named in the Convention; sources, levels and harms; citizen participation and public awareness; ratification of the Treaty; alternatives to POPs; new POPs; and recommendations concerning inventories. The report is a useful reference document that provides the basic information required by NGOs in Argentina that they will need to prepare awareness-raising activities and materials, identify further areas of investigation, plan campaigns, and prepare for a meaningful role in NIP preparations. Taller Ecologista participates in the Citizen's Antiincineration Coalition (www.noalaincineración.org), and this network and the Citizen National Coalition against PCBs played an important role in the public awareness activities around the dissemination of the report. This is the first citizen-prepared national report on the Stockholm Convention and POPs situation in Argentina.
