Banning Hazardous Pesticides: Recommendation for Myanmar

Vision Zero Fund is a project on occupational safety and health (OSH) working in Myanmar since May 2017 in the garment, ginger, and contruction value chains. Handling agrochemicals brings risks to farmers and has been a significant OSH concern in the ginger value chain.

“Banning Hazardous Pesticides: Recommendation for Myanmar” is a note that aims to focus how banning the most hazardous pesticides in use is a valuable means of harm reduction. The note evaluates the international evidence for this strategy and the national evidence available to guide bans of specific pesticides in Myanmar. In addition, it explores options such as strengthening the pesticide registration process, as well as the challenge posed by the illegal trade of these chemicals.
