Brussels – Representatives from the European Member States in the EU Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (SCOPAFF) today voted to ban the neurotoxic pesticides chlorpyrifos and chlorpyrifos-methyl from the EU market, a historic move that has been applauded by health and environment groups [1].
 

On the 35th anniversary of the poisoning disaster in Bhopal, India, where thousands of people were immediately killed and hundreds of thousands of people injured from exposure to a leak of methyl isocyanate and other gases, the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal (ICJB), Pesticide Action Network (PAN) and other organizations are demanding action:

Desde RAP-AL abogamos por un mundo libre de plaguicidas y la consecución de la soberanía alimentaria desde la producción agroecológica

Desde la Red de Acción en Plaguicidas y sus Alternativas de América Latina, una vez más, advertimos sobre la creciente utilización de plaguicidas en todo nuestro continente derivado tanto de la expansión de monocultivos insustentables cuanto de la permisividad de nuestros gobiernos que posibilitan el registro y comercialización de plaguicidas prohibidos en otros continentes, además de no realizar un control efectivo de su utilización.
 

The second edition of IPEN's bi-annual Global Newsletter for 2019 focuses on pesticides. The newsletter opens with an excerpt from the Beyond 2020: Chemical safety and Agenda 2030 document by IPEN and Pesticide Action Network, published in January 2017, and includes highlights and stories from the field. All contributions were provided by the IPEN Regional Hubs and Participating Organizations, working together for a toxics-free future.

This report presents findings of a study conducted by Centre for Environment Justice and Development (CEJAD) between December 2018 and January 2019 with support from IPEN. The purpose of the project study was to develop a country situation report on pesticides management, and promote the phase out of Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs) and the use of alternative, non-chemical approaches such as agro-ecology in agricultural practices in Kenya.

Aligned to the IPEN Strategy to phase out HHPs in Africa, this report by the Centre de Recherche et d'Education pour le Développement documents the list of HHPs registered and being used in Cameroon using Pesticide Action Network’s HHPs criteria, in addition to the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) – World Health Organization (WHO) criteria in the definition and identification of HHPs; the list of pesticides homologated for importation and use in Cameroon; and the pesticide registration process.

Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs) are a threat to human health and the environment, with significant impacts on developing and transition countries. In 2015, more than 100 governments at the 4th International Conference on Chemicals Management agreed that HHPs were an issue of global concern and reached a consensus resolution to give priority to the promotion of agroecological alternatives in the process of implementing the strategy on HHPs developed by FAO-UNEP-WHO.[1]
