The UN Environment, Chemicals and Health Branch implemented the full size Global Environmental Facility (GEF) project „Global project on the updating of National Implementation Plans for POPs“and the medium size GEF project „Global project on the updating of National Implementation Plans for POPs – add on to umbrella FSP project“. The objective of the two projects is to assist countries to review and update the National Implementation Plan (NIP) in order to comply with reporting obligations (Article 15) and updating of National Implementation Plans (Article 7) under the Stockholm Convention. The current report has been compiled considering the valuable information provided by a large majority of the projects countries, as well as by other invited countries with relevant experience on the developing, updating or revising of the national implementation plans. Moreover, information provided by other GEF implementing agencies, as well as by the non-governmental organizations was also considered.
