The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants is an international treaty that requires Parties to phase-out and eliminate the production and use of the most persistent and toxic chemicals that have adverse impacts on human health and the environment.
Solomon Islands acceded to the Convention on 28 July 2004. Under Article 7 of the Convention, the Solomon Islands Government (SIG) is required to develop and endeavour to implement a National Implementation Plan (NIP), outlining how its obligations under the Convention will be met.
This NIP is a fulfilment of the Article 7 obligation. It is intended to be a pragmatic and living document that caters for the national context, with the flexibility to be updated whenever necessary to reflect government decisions, new amendments, and other changes from time to time
