Campaign to raise public awareness of pesticides, including banned and obsolete ones, and their health impacts.
GEBMA assessed information on the production, import, distribution and application of pesticides in Georgia from 1984 to 2004. The study identified facilities for storage of stockpiles of banned and obsolete pesticides. NGOs carried out an independent analysis of statistical data on population morbidity and health problems among people living in close vicinity to the hotspots. Field visits to specific districts of the country for implementation of monitoring activities were organized. Using Eco-Accord Methodological Recommendations for NGOs on inventory of obsolete pesticide stockpiles, local people were involved in identification of obsolete pesticides in Kakhetia and Shida Kartli regions. A brochure including information on the methodology of public environmental inventories of pesticides was prepared in the Georgian language.
