The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants is a comprehensive global attempt to reduce the risks of organic pollutants on human health and the environment. This work analyses the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) prepared under the auspices of the United Nations Environment Programme Chemical Division. The treaty entered into force May 17, 2004 as the first international legal instrument to focus attention on the dangers of persistent organic pollutants - chemicals that are commonly used as pesticides in agriculture and to control insects causing diseases like malaria.
