JOF's "STOP PCBs
Project" is supported by the Japan Fund for the Global Environment.
With a grant from the Japan Fund for
the Global Environment, since 2001 The Japan Offspring Fund
has been working on a project called "Prevention of Environmental
Pollution by Organic Chlorine Compounds, such as PCBs in the
Asian Region." We have taken a wide range of actions, including
bringing out posters in six languages to promote the abolishment
of PCBs, holding an international symposium, and participating
in the Stockholm Conference of the United Nations Environment
Program (UNEP) and Codex Alimentarius of the World Health
Organization (WHO) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
<What is the Japan Fund for the Global Environment?>
The Japan Fund for the Global Environment (JFGE) was established
in 1993 under the Japan Environmental Corporation to assist
environmental efforts by NGOs and to promote capacity building
necessary for the development of programs for environmental
protection. The Japan Environmental Corporation supports
environmental protection activities and promotes a project
for the treatment of PCBs in Japan. JFGE is supported by
various funds and donations from citizens and cooperatives,
and is run under the supervision of its board of directors.
Information of the projects supported available to the public.
