Global overview of the conservation of migratory Arctic breeding birds outside the Arctic
Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF)

This report focuses on migratory waterbirds that breed in Arctic, as defined by CAFF member states, and migrate to winter quarters outside CAFF countries. It investigates those international mechanisms (conventions, agreemements, programmes and actions plans), both legally binding and voluntarily, which are relevant to the conservation of migratory Arctic waterbirds and habitats throughout their non-breeding ranges.

Persistent organic pollutants: inventory of information sources on chemicals
United Nations Environment Programme

Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are organic compounds of natural or anthropogenic origin that resist photolytic, chemical and biological degradation. They are characterized by low water solubility and high lipid solubility, resulting in bioaccumulation in fatty tissues of living organisms. POPs are transported in the environment in low concentrations by movement of fresh and marine waters and they are semi-volatile, enabling them to move long distances in the atmosphere, resulting in wide-spread distribution across the earth, including regions where they have never been used. Thus, both humans and environmental organisms are exposed to POPs around the world, in many cases for extended period of time.
