On the 23rd of August, Tros nieuwsshow interviewed Bram de Borst about what is needed to create a DDT-free world. Due to the economical crisis, in developing countries like Kyrgyzstan DDT is traded illegally at local farmer markets. However, as 60 people needed to be hospitalized in 2011 and 130 sheep died a year later, the Kyrgyz authorities understood that they really have a problem. Milieukontakt supports local NGOs and local authorities to identify the stocks and demonstrates ways to deal with this issue. Developing countries need international assistance to help them to solve the problem.
