Publication date:  December 2006
Publication reference number:  ME 789

The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants commits governments to take measures to protect human health and the environment from persistent organic pollutants (POPs).

New Zealand's National Implementation Plan under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants sets out how New Zealand is meeting its obligations under this convention.
