Stop PCB Pollution
Have you ever heard of PCBs ?
We all have shared the benefits of PCBs. However, if we do not take action, it will be our children, and future generations, who have had nothing to do with PCB production and usage, who face the detrimental consequences. We should not leave negative legacies of the 20th century to future generations. Putting an end to this problem within our generation is a responsibility for the whole world.

We, the participants from countries in the Asia-Pacific region to the International Symposium on PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) express here our concern about the continuing presence of POPs in our environment and their harmful effects on human and animal health.
