Agroecology: a viable option to phasing out Highly Hazardous Pesticides from Ethiopia
In Ethiopia, there are a number of tested means that support the process of phasing out the use of highly hazardous pesticides by replacing them with ecologically-based crop production systems. With the involvement of different civil society organisations and support from the government extension systems, the ecological farming initiative is building momentum. There are a number of best practices and success stories in reducing and /or avoiding the use of toxic chemicals by replacing them with alternatives. Read about them in this report prepared by Pesticide Action Nexus Association.
This report relates to Sustainable Development Goals 2, 3, 6, 8, 12, 13, 14 and 15.
