The problem of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) has been addressed through the many years of hard work by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), which resulted in the drafting of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants by the UN. POPs are chemical substances that resist degradation, accumulate in living organisms, and can cause irreversible reactions in the human body and the environment. While Taiwan is currently not a party to the Stockholm Convention, it has specially drafted the "National Implementation Plan of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants" in order to serve as a basis for domestic implementation work. The objectives of this project: (1)To ensure that POPs management in Taiwan conforms more closely to international development trends and prepare for the listing of new POPs in the future.(2)To establish monitoring systems for POPs in the environment and biological matrix, reduce environmental pollution risk, establish a nontoxic living environment, and ensure the safety of the public's food supply. (3)To implement POPs management mechanism, monitor pollutant dispersal in the environment, implement pollution control strategies, and emphasize Taiwan's willingness to abide by international conventions.
