This online training module was developed by SGP in collaboration with the International POPs Elimination Network (IPEN), with a purpose of building awareness about the Stockholm Convention on POPs, its legal and institutional arrangements and good cases or examples of community-based POPs management. It also helps explain the importance of local community and NGO contributions to national and international POPs reduction and elimination efforts. The POPs training module consists of seven chapters, followed by a basic self-test. All National Coordinators, members of the National Steering Committees, SGP Programme Assistants and other SGP stakeholders, partners and interested individuals are invited to study the module and complete the accompanying self-test. Each individual who completes and returns the self-test will receive a certificate of completion.
