Popis The purpose of this article is to summarize the foundations for world-wide air monitoring for persistent organic pollutants (POPs). Although the main driver is the monitoring required under the Global Monitoring Plan (GMP) of the Stockholm Convention (SC) on POPs, there are many linkages to developments in research and capacity-building efforts. These efforts include new technologies, programs, infrastructures, capacity building and training activities. The ultimate goal is to move towards a comprehensive, harmonized framework to fulfill the needs of the GMP and to address data gaps. Several international workshops have specifically dealt with these technical and logistical needs and considered strategies for future work and reporting needs for producing reliable results. At the same time, the successful completion of the first Global Monitoring Report resulted in insights regarding the future of the GMP and associated needs for reporting temporal trends in the context of effectiveness evaluation of the SC. The potential role of passive air samplers (PASs) in meeting the challenges of the GMP has been realized. These PASs provide complementary data to existing high volume air-sampling networks in a cost-effective and sustainable way.
