Keep the Promise, Eliminate POPs in Waste!
Since 2001, Arnika - Toxics and Waste Programme hosts the secretariat of the Dioxin, PCBs and Waste Working Group of IPEN (International POPs Elimination Network), and since 2008 it is an IPEN coordination center for Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) Region. We also coordinate important projects of the international campaign Keep the Promise, Eliminate POPs (persistent organic pollutants).
IPEP IN CEE
On May 1, 2004, the International POPs Elimination Network (IPEN) began a global NGO project called the International POPs Elimination Project (IPEP) in partnership with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). The Global Environment Facility (GEF) provided core funding for the project.
