Understanding the alternatives, technical and financial costs? What scientists can provide to decisionmakers in China for POPs control? Where and in what form do decisionmakers get scientific advice? What are some elements of good science advice? Are there existing “bridging or boundary” organizations that can help create effective interface between scientists and decisionmakers providing “reliable and timely translations of information and views between the two communities”? How can the decision-making process be facilitated through scientific input (Provide illustrations)? What can be done to improve communications, build TRUST? What does the science community need to understand about decisionmakers? As part of their deliberations the groups should develop proposals for development of the following: Development of science-based policy and implementation plans for POPs control; Appropriate methods of communication between and among policy-makers, scientists, and the public; Plans to develop monitoring and predicting the fates of chemicals in the environment; risk assessment and risk communication Methods to ensure that these decision support systems meet the information needs of decisionmakers Panel 1: Improving the communication between scientists and decisionmakers aiming at intentional production control Workgroup co-moderator: FISCHER Larry, WONG Minghung Workgroup co-rapporteur: HICKEY Chris, YU Hongxia 16:00~16:30 Reports 1.
