This booklet is a training tool for capacity development initiatives aimed at planners and educators on rural development. It is also a useful tool for university professors, students and researchers of the agriculture rural development and education sectors. This booklet illustrates the treaty, called the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs). The persistent organic pollutants (POPs) pose such significant threats to health and the environment that on 22 May 2001, the world’s governments met in Sweden and adopted an international treaty aimed at restricting and ultimately eliminating their production, use, release and storage.
