POPs in PICs is a project to eliminate persistent organic pollutants from Pacific Island countries. This report outlines the approximate volume of persistent organic pollutants collected in the Pacific Islands by the end of the project in 2006 for each country as well as lessons learned.
Although Tuvalu has no history of manufacturing persistent organic pollutants (POPs), this data-set consists of;
1. the first report (2008) that represents the first stepping stone for the country to outline strategies in order to meet its obligations under the Stockholm Convention, also given the chemical nature, including long range environmental transport of POPs that is a global concern.
2. The Tuvalu National Action Plan to reduce releases of unintentional persistent organic pollutants (u-POPs) 2018 - 2022
Samoa’s National Implementation Plan (NIP) for Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) incorporates the findings of several studies implemented to assess the presence of POPs chemicals and levels of contamination, areas of significant contamination, the country’s institutional capacity to formulate and implement a plan for POPs reduction and elimination, and to finalize an inventory of POPs in the country.
