Success story

EO-based surveillance of POPs pollution

Profile

The Global Monitoring Plan (GMP) of the Stockholm Convention (SC) was established as an effective and sustainable global system to collect comparable, harmonized and reliable information on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POP) levels in core media (air, human tissues (breast milk/blood), and water) supporting the effectiveness evaluation of the Stockholm Convention. The mandate for the effectiveness evaluation is Article 16 of the Stockholm Convention and decisions SC-5/18 and SC-7/25.

Proposal

The EO-based tool increases the availability and quality of information needed to tracks POPs and anticipate changes in the global environment through harmonizing metadata production, archiving, and sharing. The developed advanced web services might be used to support the effectiveness evaluation policy mandate of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants and LRTAP Convention.
