For decades, the distribution and use of hazardous pesticides is an issue of concern. Since it’s founding in 1982, Pesticide Action Network (PAN) has been the civil society organization (CSO) most steadily and continuously calling for effective international action towards the elimination of hazardous pesticides. And PAN has been one of the key driving forces among non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for improving plant protection policies towards safer, socially just and economically viable pest management systems.
This PAN list of HHPs provides a basis for action to implement the progressive ban of highly hazardous pesticides. PAN would like to encourage individuals, institutions, organizations and companies to develop a plan of action with priorities, timeframes and concrete measures. PAN itself will support such initiatives wherever possible.
‘PAN International List of Highly Hazardous Pesticides’ has been drafted by Pesticide Action Network Germany for ‘Working Group 1: Pesticides & Corporations of Pesticide Action Network International.
