"Prior to the POPs negotiations, UNEP organized a series of 8 regional/subregional awareness raising workshops on POPs which covered 138 developing countries and countries with economies in transition to prepare the governments and other partners for the negotiations and encourage immediate action on POPs at the national and regional level including case studies. As a follow-up UNEP is organizing regional/subregional workshops on the management of POPs and their releases, aimed ... at initiating the development of relevant national strategies, action plans, projects and at strengthening regional co-operation."--From UNEP website. 09/05/2002.
