2014 Year of Action for EU FAO Partnership Project
2014 is set to be the busiest year yet for the EU and FAO partnership project “Improved pesticides and chemicals management in the Former Soviet Union”, of which Milieukontakt is one of the implementing partner organisations.
The plans are now in place. The targets have been identified and the partners at national and regional level have a clear picture as to where we want to be by the end of the year. We have already been joined by Belarus who signed the project agreement with FAO in early February. We hope the remaining countries make similar commitments in the first quarter of the year.
Please read the Project Newsletter, focusing on the following issues:
1. Actions for dealing with (obsolete) pesticides problems from the past
2. Actions for achieving a sustainable future
3. Actions to further improve communication, capacity assessment and education as the key to pesticide risk reduction
