Report on management of pesticide related health and environmental risks

This report identifies shortcomings in the identification, monitoring and management of pesticides related risks in the reviewed Swedish supported programmes, and provides the following recommendations:

- clarify Sida’s position on the use and management of pesticides
- make it mandatory for partner organisations to conduct an assessment of health and environmental risks for programmes involving pesticides
- assure that there is a plan to monitor and manage the identified health and environmental risks
- include environment and health aspects in contractual agreements with partner organisations
- support government capacity to regulate agrochemical market and promotion of IPM
