Brochure on elimination of risks from obsolete pesticides in Moldova

Posted on October 3, 2011 in Obsolete Pesticides, Public Participation, Publication.

Milieukontakt is co-author of the recent brochure The Eliminators in Moldova, published within the GEF/FAO project Capacity Building on Obsolete and POPs Pesticides in EasternEuropean Caucasus and Central Asian Countries. The brochure was prepared to serve as an example and inspiration for those who will work or are already working on problems related to obsolete pesticides and Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), irrespective whether they work for national or local governments, NGOs, scientific organisations, donors or the private sector.

In the period 2005-2006, Milieukontakt and partners IHPA and Tauw set up a project in the Hincesti rayon in Moldova in order to safeguard 100 tonnes of obsolete pesticides as a pilot project, while simultaneously running public awareness campaigns and securing the involvement of local stakeholders. Milieukontakt has since then executed similar projects in Georgia, Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine and is still actively involved in elimination of risks from obsolete pesticides, most specifically in Eastern European, Caucasus and Central Asian (EECCA) countries.

The brochure has recently been distributed during the 11th Intenational HCH and Pesticides Forum in Azerbaijan. You can download a copy here:
