Programa de Manejo Integrado de Producción y Plagas en África

Measuring pesticide ecological and health risks in West African agriculture to establish an enabling environment for sustainable intensification

We outline an approach to pesticide risk assessment that is based upon surveys
of pesticide use throughout West Africa. We have developed and used
new risk assessment models to provide, to our knowledge, the first detailed,
geographically extensive, scientifically based analysis of pesticide risks for
this region.
