A Toxics-Free Future


Information booklet on POPs for greater community participation in the issues in India

In 2011, the government of India submitted its National Implementation Plan (NIP) for persistent organic pollutants. Toxics Link, in an effort to bring a better understanding of this to interested stakeholders, prepared an easy-to-use and understand informational sheet that explains how the NIP is related to current issues on dioxin, furans and DDT use, as well as how the NIP is aligned with the Stockholm Convention. With this guide sheet, civil society groups now have a means to communicate information to their constituencies and manifest meaningful change at the local and regional levels. The informational material is also being disseminated to government agencies, schools and colleges, legal groups, and worker associations.
