|Eco/Green - Pesticide Action Network UK|
Pesticide Action Network UK (PAN UK)http://www.pan-uk.org/
PAN UK promotes healthy food, agriculture and an environment which will provide food and meet public health needs without dependence on toxic chemicals, and without harm to food producers and agricultural workers.
PAN UK is an independent, non-profit organisation. We work nationally and internationally with like-minded groups and individuals concerned with health, environment and development to:
- Eliminate the hazards of pesticides
- Reduce dependence on pesticides and prevent unnecessary expansion of use
- Increase the sustainable and ecological alternatives to chemical pest control.
Strategies for change
Information We publish unique and independent information on pesticides for governments and decision-makers, researchers, trade unions, public interest groups, those affected by pesticides, the media, academics, educational bodies and concerned citizens.
Research We undertake and target appropriate research to promote better understanding of the cause and effect of pesticide problems.
Policy advocacy We promote effective and progressive policies to eliminate pesticide hazards, representing concerns of users, consumers and exposed communities nationally and internationally.
Networking and capacity building Our actions with other networks expand our own capacity to be effective, and our information and research strengthens their understanding of pesticide problems.
Support for field work We support projects with partners in developing countries to
demonstrate the viability of organic production as a means of providing farmers with economically viable, socially acceptable and environmentally sound livelihoods.
