OEWG on SAICM, 15-17 December 2014, Geneva
PANAP is participating in the Open-ended Working Group (OEWG) on Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) and hopes that the governments at the meeting make recommendations to cooperate and take actions that would reduce and eliminate the impacts of highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs) and these are put forward for consideration by the International Conference on Chemicals Management at its fourth session.
Human Rights Day: #NoLandNoLife
On 10 December, Human Rights Day, we wish to highlight a form of human rights violation that does not get as much attention. Land and resource grabbing represents a worsening threat to the human rights of countless local communities. This systemic violation of the right to food, right to self-determination of peoples and right to development, must be stopped.
