NarrativeThe Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants and other new international treaties aim to protect human health and the environment, and require monitoring, analysis and remediation for a wide range of pollutants. Compliance is difficult for many developing countries to achieve, a major hurdle being lack of training and facilities. World-leading research in the department of Civil Engineering has been used to develop a training course in Stockholm convention implementation. This course has run three times, for 36 practitioners mainly from Africa and Asia. This training has enabled more effective environmental regulation, improved monitoring and better capacity for enforcement.
