GMP2 GRULAC Inception and New POPs Workshop

Montevideo (Uruguay), 1-4 December 2015

From 1 to 4 December 2015, the Stockholm Regional Center in Uruguay is organizeding a joint workshop for two GEF funded projects on the GMP, namely the GEF project on “Tools and Methods to Include the Nine New POPs into the GMP” (New POPs project) and on the GEF project on “Continuing regional Support for the POPs Global Monitoring Plan under the Stockholm Convention in the Latin American and Caribbean Region” (GMP2 GRULAC).  The objective of this joint workshop is to present the results and outputs (e.g. guidance documents) of the New POPs project project into the GMP (1 December 2015)  and to officially launch the GMP2 GRULAC the GEF GMP project in the LAC region project (1-4 December 2015) by definining roles and responsibilities of each partner, by discussing technical aspects of the project, and by agreeing on the programme and activities to be carried out in the projecproject.
