"The report highlights key findings related to the complex relationship between climate change and abatement of POPs. It provides an overall view of POPs releases into the environment, long-range transport and environmental fate, and human and environmental exposure in a changing climate, as well as potential coupled effects of climate and POPs on human health and the environment. The report also addresses the synergies between climate change mitigation policies and actions to eliminate and manage POPs, and provides recommendations based on the current state of science."
