The RSTO hazardous waste landfill: a POPs waste hotspot.
This activity produced a hotspot report on a hazardous waste landfill and launched a public awareness-raising campaign to highlight the importance of decisions taken about POPs waste within policy strategies at both the national and international levels. The RSTO landfill lacks appropriate seals to prevent POPs and other toxic chemicals from leaching out. The study examined government documents on landfill construction and types of hazardous waste permitted which includes POPs sources. The awareness-raising campaign translated materials from the Regional Hub; updated them with country-relevant information; and disseminated the materials to key stakeholders.
