Russia Country Situation Report

Country situation report on POPs in Russia.

This report is co-authored by Oxana Tsitser, an expert of the Russian Federation Sate Duma Committee on Ecology. The document describes and assesses the country situation in Russia with respect to POPs and Stockholm Convention implementation. Topics covered include: sources including accumulation of POPs from the surrounding natural environment both from its own sources and also from trans-boundary ones; levels of POPs despite poor monitoring and inventory information; damage caused by POPs, regulatory framework, Convention status; state level and NGO activities; and NGO recommendations on POPs elimination. The report is a useful reference document that provides the basic information required by NGOs in Russia to prepare awareness raising activities and materials, identify further areas of investigation, plan campaigns and prepare for a meaningful role in NIP preparations.
