A Framework for Action to Protect Human Health and the Environment from Hazardous Pesticides

This booklet is about how nongovernmental organization (NGOs) and other civil society organizations (CSOs) can help protect farmers, workers, communities and the environment from harms caused by hazardous pesticides. It was produced for an international consortium of NGOs as part of a global NGO campaign to encourage organizations in all countries to contribute to efforts aimed at preventing the injuries that are caused by toxic chemical exposure. The booklet should be of special interest to organizations that work in countries where the national government has not yet established legislation, regulations and enforcement mechanisms that adequately protect public health and the environment from pesticide misuse.
