Mid-term evaluation of ''Disposal of Persistent Organic Pollutants and Obsolete Pesticides and Strengthening Life-cycle Management of Pesticides in Benin”


Inadequate agricultural policies and poorly enforced regulations lead to the accumulation of unused pesticides. In Benin, stockpiles of obsolete pesticides have become a great concern, posing a threat not only to human health and environment, but also to the sustainable development of the region. Farmers also often look for cheaper pesticides and use different chemicals than those officially recommended. FAO implemented the project ‘Disposal of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and obsolete pesticides and strengthening life-cycle management of pesticides in Benin’ from June 2015 to May 2019 with the aim to develop capacity at the community and institutional levels to manage current and future stocks. The mid-term evaluation reports the project achievements, such as identifying four alternatives to chemical pesticides and developing national capacities of trained individuals, as well as the areas for improvement. Also addressed are the factors contributing to the continuity of activities after the end of the project.
