Public information campaign to lobby for Stockholm Convention ratification by Kyrgyzstan.
NGOs organized three regional workshops and press conferences to raise public awareness on POPs and associated risks. The publication, "Mechanisms of Inter-agency and Inter-sectoral Co-operation for Addressing POPs-related Problems: Law, Experience, Recommendations" prepared in the framework of the previous IPEP project was used as the background material for the meetings. The gatherings of NGOs and government officials yielded a letter to the speaker of the parliament urging ratification of the Stockholm Convention. Later, the NGO and the Ministry of Health co-hosted a press conference to call for Convention ratification. The campaign was successful. On June 13, 2006, Kyrgyzstan ratified the Stockholm Convention.
