Highly Hazardous Pesticides

Highly Hazardous Pesticides are a global concern - especially in developing countries. Over governmental bodies and other organisations invested in "safe use" programs - without success. Therefore an increasing number of scientists, politicians, and agricultural experts call for a progressive ban of highly hazardous pesticides.

To support the phase out of highly hazardous pesticides PAN has :

  • investigated and documents the adverse effects of chemical intensive pest management systems,
  • defined the term "highly hazardous pesticde" and
  • developped approaches to avoid poisings caused by pesticides.

Stop Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs) -

Call to ban HHPs - Take action Decades’ of experience has shown that, despite numerous “safe use” programmes, the safe use of highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs) is not possible. People, farm animals, wildlife and the environment continue to suffer considerable harm from HHPs. After years of failure which have seen millions of deaths from pesticides worldwide, new policies are needed to stop pesticide poisonings and illness. A phaseout and ban of HHPs, along with new policies to support more sustainable alternatives, can make a change towards a healthy and sustainable world for all.
Join the PAN International call to ban HHPs! Take action!

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.
