Global day of action: youth and POPs.
A multi-stakeholder conference celebrating the global day of action on POPs was held that included NGOs, Ministries, media and members of the public. The goal was to educate and empower the community and involve them in the sustainable development process. The activity was furthered by joining hands with the Egyptian Authorities including Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Irrigation and Water Resources, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Petrol, and Ministry of Industry. The conference included presentations on POPs and their harmful effects, and it urged full implementation of the Stockholm Convention and increased participation of civil society in its implementation.
