New IPEN Video: Introduction to the Dioxin Toolkit

This video is an introduction to the United Nations Environment Programme's Dioxin Toolkit (2013). It offers a brief history of the Toolkit, including its relationship to the Stockholm Convention, and a step-by-step search of the Toolkit for information on identifying sources of dioxins and other unintentional POPs addressed by the Convention.

The presenter in the video is Pat Costner, B.S., M.S., who worked with IPEN primarily via IPEN's Dioxin, Waste and PCBs Working Group. Ms. Costner was a member of the Stockholm Convention's Toolkit Expert Group, a Senior Scientist with Greenpeace, and a Science Advisor for the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives (GAIA).
