Monitoring of POPs pesticides in the Slovak Republic.
POPs pesticides were banned in the 1980s and 1990s in Slovakia, but their residues persist in the environment, food, and humans. This activity focuses on how POPs pesticides and some other POPs are monitored in Slovakia. The report identifies responsible ministries, which substances are measured, and which media are examined. The study identified gaps, threats and opportunities to improve the system to make it more integrated and to better protect human health and the environment.
