Communities In Peril: Global Report On The Health Impacts Of Pesticide Use In Agriculture


Since its founding in 1982 Pesticide Action Network (PAN) has worked to replace the use of hazardous pesticides with ecologically sound and socially just alternatives. An important basis and tool of PAN’s work has been monitoring the distribution, use and disposal of pesticides. This report, the latest result of PAN monitoring activities, reflects how a food and agricultural system promoted by a handful of agrochemical corporations has not only failed to deliver on ending hunger and stimulating prosperity, but in fact, left a footprint of damage to the health of peoples and ecosystems through the dangerous use, trade and disposal of synthetic pesticides.
