A Toxics-Free Future


Pesticide Research Report in Georgia

The goal of the project is to obtain information on highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs) in Georgia, their management and phase-out in the country, as well as the use of alternative, non-chemical approaches (eg agroecology) in agriculture, which will help agricultural sector create conditions for food safety and take measures for integrated pest management.

In particular, the review focused on:

  • An assessment of the use and management of pesticides, in the light of existing policy and the legal frameworks;
  • Identification of existing alternatives for phasing out HHPs in Georgia, such as agroecology, organic agriculture and Integrated Pest Management (IPM);
  • Raising awareness of the impact of HHPs and alternatives to them.

The research was carried out by the NGO EcoVision with the financial support of IPEN.
