agroecology

IPEN has prepared comments on green chemistry and sustainable chemistry in response to Resolution 2/7 of the UN Environment Assembly. IPEN believes that sustainable chemistry will only be useful if it is clearly defined in a way that includes reducing and eliminating the hazards of chemicals over their lifecycle as a priority.

A paper entitled "Integrated pest management in cotton-growing areas in the Southern Rift Valley region of Ethiopia: development and application of a supplementary food spray product to manage pests and beneficial insects," authored by Tadesse Amera (from IPEN Participating Organization Pesticide Action Nexus Ethiopia), has been published in the International Journal of Pest Management. The activities in the paper could be replicated by those who are interested in the subject.
