Toolkit for investigating and managing POPs-contaminated sites

Contaminated Site Toolkit

The Toolkit for POPs-contaminated site investigation and management was developed by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) Expert Group on POPs. The Toolkit aims to aid developing countries with the identification, classification and prioritization of POP-contaminated sites, and with the development of suitable technologies for land remediation in accordance with best available techniques and best environmental practices. 

The Toolkit focuses exclusively on the initial 12 POPs listed in the Stockholm Convention and is structured into five main modules on policy and legal issues, site investigation, site risk assessment, management of contaminated sites, and costing and financing implications. It is a training tool and self-directed manual and resource document for decision-makers, practitioners and a range of other stakeholders.
