A Toxics-Free Future


Study on Highly Hazardous Pesticides in Morocco

The objective of this study, led by the Association Marocaine Santé, Environnement et Toxicovigilance (AMSETOX) was to draw up a situation report on highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs) in Morocco in order to promote their elimination and the use of alternative non-chemical approaches. At its conclusion, AMSETOX recommends to:
- Establish a strategy for the progressive ban of highly hazardous pesticides registered in Morocco;
- Increase the country's capacity to identify products banned in the country;
- Increase control capacities to detect counterfeit products;
- Ensure the production and / or introduction of biological controls and develop an effective standardization system for quality biological inputs;
- Raise awareness and encourage industrialists for the introduction of biological controls;
- Develop labeling aimed at promoting certified organic agricultural products; and
- Find a concerted solution for empty packaging and obsolete stocks of pesticides.
