Thought Starter Paper on Highly Hazardous Pesticides and SAICM
Pesticides Action Network (PAN) and IPEN August 2013
Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs) are a threat to human health and the environmentwith significant impacts on developing and transition countries. At ICCM3, a large number of countries fromall UN regions supported actions on HHPs, including developing a priority list of substances for a progressive ban and substitution with safer alternatives. Delegates supported intercessionalwork on HHPs, but there was insufficient time at ICCM3 to develop concrete proposals.
