Guyana strengthening chemical management

Oil and gas sector among new stakeholders


A two-day workshop is being hosted by the Pesticides and Toxic Chemicals Control Board (PTCCB), to review and strengthen Guyana’s management of chemicals and update the list of Persistent Organic Pollutants.

This exercise comes as the country recently received funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to commence a review and update of the National Implementation Plan for Guyana which falls under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants. Guyana’s first National Implementation Plan was drafted in 2013.
