NGOs draft appeal to stop producing, importing and using highly hazardous pesticides in the EECCA
17 July 2014
IPEN Participating Organizations in the Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asian (EECCA) region have prepared an Appeal to governments, MPs and local authorities to stop producing, importing and using highly hazardous pesticides in the region. Highly hazardous pesticides are a huge problem in the region, which was proven by a pioneer study conducted by IPEN and Eco-Accord in seven EECCA countries a few months ago.
The Appeal highlights IPEN and Pesticide Action Network recommendations on highly hazardous pesticides and contains information on their risks to human health.
