A Toxics-Free Future


POPs Pesticides in China

China POPs pesticides situation.

A report on POPs pesticides in China was produced to investigate and describe background information on POPs pesticides that have been previously used and are possibly still in use in agriculture. It summarized information on known levels of POPs pesticides and incidence of pollution, and it described measures undertaken or to be undertaken by government to address POPs. The study further outlined the Chinese government's Stockholm Convention ratification process and its National Implementation Plan, and other measures taken to curb the harms caused by POPs pesticides. Aside from information gathering for the study, activities included training and public education workshops for farmers and NGOs on POPs issues.
