UNETMAC - Documenting DDT Spraying, Production, Pollution and Alternatives in Uganda
The overall objective of this project was to reveal the ongoing proliferation of DDT pollution in manufacturing and use and cite important non-chemical alternatives to increase pressure for acting on this ongoing use in Uganda, one of the countries that have registered an acceptable purpose for DDT use within the Stockholm Convention. Uganda Network on Toxic Free Malaria Control (UNETMAC) carried out this project through literature review, field visits, and interviews with policy makers, amongst other activities.
This project relates to Sustainable Development Goals 2, 3, 6, 8, 12, 13, 14 and 15.
Special thanks to IPEN's Anglophone Africa Regional Coordinator Silvani Mng'anya and IPEN"s Anglophone Africa Regional Hub AGENDA for their important contributions to the development and finalization of the project.
