Pesticide Registration Toolkit

National Toolkit workshop in Myanmar

04/04/2016 - 07/04/2016

A national workshop on the FAO Pesticide Registration Toolkit will be organized from 4 to 7 April 2016 in Yangon, in close collaboration with the Plant Protection Division of Myanmar. The workshop will bring together pesticide registration staff from the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation, members of the national pesticide registration board and participants from relevant research institutes. The aim of the workshop is to present the contents of the Toolkit and ensure that participants can make use of it during their day-to-work. It is expected that the workshop will contribute to better informed decision making for the authorization of pesticides in Myanmar. This, in turn, will lead to more effective pest management and lower risks for human health and the environment. The workshop is funded under the FAO regional project on Pesticide Risk Reduction in South East Asia, funded by the Government of Sweden.
