National Implementation Plans

National Implementation Plans

Parties to the Stockholm Convention are required to prepare a plan explaining how they are going to implement the obligations under the Convention and make efforts to put such a plan into operation (Article 7). This so-called National Implementation Plan (NIP) is not a standalone plan for the management of POPs, but should be closely tied to the national sustainable development strategy of the Party preparing and implementing such a plan.

According to Article 7 of the Stockholm Convention, each Party shall:

  1. 1.Develop and endeavour to implement a plan for the implementation of its obligations under the Convention;
  2. 2.Transmit its implementation plan to the Conference of the Parties within two years of the date on which the Convention enters into force for it; and
  3. 3.Review and update, as appropriate, its implementation plan on a periodic basis and in a manner to be specific by a decision of the Conference of the Parties
