Regional and Extra-regional Contribution to POPs – Agenda

TF HTAP Workshop on POPs Trends and Source Attribution
Thursday, 15 April 2021

Within the next 2-5 years, the LRTAP Convention is likely to conduct a review of the effectiveness and sufficiency of the POPs Protocol as revised in 2009. The purpose of this workshop is to begin to design cooperative research activities that will enable TF HTAP to better contribute to such a future review. Specifically, to help TF HTAP 1) better assess the regional and extra-regional contribution to long term trends in POPs and 2) identify additional issues or measures that might be addressed by the LRTAP Convention to protect the environment and human health. Recognizing that POPs and Chemicals of Emerging Concern are addressed in the Stockholm Convention and other regional bodies, including but not limited to the Arctic Council and the European Union, the future work of TF HTAP should be designed to both build upon the findings of recent efforts in other forums and provide useful information back to these other forums to the extent possible.
