Rotterdam Convention | 2-4 December 2019 | Inception Workshop on Pesticide Incidences Monitoring and Occupational Exposure Study
Following the request from the Designated National Authority in Sri Lanka, a project has been developed on survey of pesticide use, incident monitoring and occupational exposure study. The proposed activities will raise awareness, collect field data on pesticide use under prevailing conditions, monitor exposure level and health impact. The project aims at enhancing national capacity in pesticide risk reduction, providing scientific data for future national regulatory decisions and effective implementation of the Rotterdam Convention, in particular Article 5 and Article 6. The project is developed by the Designated National Authority, Office of the Registrar of Pesticides, Department of Agriculture of Sri Lanka, in collaboration with the Rotterdam Convention Secretariat and FAO representation in Sri Lanka. It is funded from the FAO Regular Programme resources.
