Bats around the world

“Bats around the World” is an electronic publication on bats to increase awareness and involve the general public in the conservation of these fascinating animals. Interesting facts about bats, species profiles, threats and conservation activities undertaken by organizations across the globe can now be accessed by experts and interested laymen alike. The publication shall serve as an incentive to learn about and protect these species. The readers are invited not only to find out about these fascinating species, but also to take a quiz after reading the material to test their knowledge about bats! In addition, a “Build your bat box” game takes the readers through the steps needed to build a home for bats. The Secretariat hopes to motivate many readers to turn the game into reality by getting involved in the protection of bats! The production of this publication was made possible by the generous support of the Federal Office for the Environment of the Swiss Confederation.

Draft guidance for the inventory of perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) and related chemicals listed under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants

At its fourth meeting, the Conference of the Parties (COP) of the Stockholm Convention agreed to list nine new persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in Annexes A, B, and C of the Convention. In light of this decision, Parties must review and update their national implementation plans (NIPs) in accordance with paragraph 1 (c) of Article 7 of the Convention. The updated NIPs should be transmitted to the COP within two years of the date in which these amendments entered into force in August 2012, for most Parties, .

Guidance for the inventory of perfluorooctane sulfonic acid and related chemicals listed under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants

The objective of this document is to provide step-by-step guidance that enables Parties to establish an inventory of products and articles containing PFOS and related chemicals and industrial processes using these chemicals. The guidance includes methods for estimating the amount of such chemicals in products and articles in cases where accurate data is lacking. The inventory should provide Parties with baseline data on the presence of PFOS at the national level. Such data would serve as a basis for Parties to develop strategies/action plans for meeting their obligations under the Convention in relation to PFOS.

Guidance on the Global Monitoring Plan for Persistent Organic Pollutants - Preliminary version, February 2007. Amended in May 2007

The objective of the guidance document is therefore to:

Provide a uniform framework for all activities and tasks associated with collection, assessment and reporting of environmental background levels of the POPs listed in annexes A, B, and C of the Stockholm Convention in order to provide comparable information for the Conference of the Parties as required in paragraph 2 of Article 16 of the Convention

Technical guidelines on the environmentally sound co-processing of hazardous wastes in cement kilns

The present publication provides guidance on the environmentally sound co-processing of hazardous wastes in cement kilns. The technical guidelines was adopted by the tenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal (decision BC-10/8) in October 2011.

Co-processing of wastes in properly controlled cement kilns provides energy and materials recovery while cement is being produced, offering an environmentally sound recovery option for many waste materials. As countries strive for greater self-sufficiency in hazardous waste management, particularly in developing countries that may have little or no waste management infrastructure, properly controlled co-processing can provide a practical, cost effective and environmentally preferred option to landfill and incineration.
