Highly Hazardous Pesticides

What are Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs)?

Meanwhile more than a decade ago an international UN-level debate about a 'progressive ban of highly hazardous pesticides' (HHPs) was started - however, without defining the term 'highly hazardous pesticide' clearly.
The global Pesticide Action Network (PAN) – supported by more than 500 organisations from more than 100 countries fights for a ban of such pesticides, and PAN was the first organisation globally defining this term. The PAN International List of Highly Hazardous Pesticides shows which pesticides are highly hazardous and it explains how the list was generated by PAN.
For all those, who are interested in this important topic but who didn’t have the time to learn a bit more about the issue, we have published a 1-pager for a quick view at this issue.

International Appeal

Rational for a progressive of Highly Hazardous Pesticides by Fair Trade Organisations For a ban of highly hazardous pesticides

Decades of experience has shown that, despite numerous ‘safe use’ programs, the ’safe use’ of highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs) is not possible. People, farmanimals, wildlife and the environment continue to suffer considerable harm from HHPs. After decades of failure which have seen millions of deaths worldwide, new policies are needed to stop pesticide poisonings. A progressive phaseout and ban of HHPs, along with new policies for supporting alternatives, can make a change towards a healthy and sustainable world for all.
We, the undersigned organizations, call on governments and corporations to take concrete steps towards a progressive ban of HHPs and their substitution with ecosystem-based alternatives.

Stop Pesticide Poisonings! A time travel through international pesticide policies

Cover The popular PAN Germany publication "Stop Pesticide Poisonings - A time travel through international pesticide policies" is now available as an updated, extended and newly layouted edition.
It takes the reader on a quick journey through the years since pesticide poisonings in developing countries first came to international attention. It highlights the global efforts to solve pesticide-related problems, and looks behind the statements and statistics of dangerous pesticide use and poisonings in developing countries. The key message of Stop Pesticide Poisonings is that "safe use of highly hazardous pesticides" is not possible, especially in developing countries. It suggests the urgent need for a progressive ban of highly hazardous pesticides, while phasing in sustainable, ecosystem-based plant production systems.
