Abstract

The main objective of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) is to protect human health and the environment from overexposure to POPs. As one of the signatories to the Stockholm Convention, China has built significant capacity and carried out intensive studies on sources of emissions, levels of environmental pollution, and risk assessment associated with dioxins in recent years. Significant progress has been made in adopting and ratifying the Stockholm Convention.This article provides a brief overview of recent progress in capacity building for dioxin analysis, source identification and quantification of dioxin emissions, environmental monitoring of dioxin contamination, and risk assessment of human exposure to dioxins in China.
