The SAICM Secretariat, in partnership with the University of Cape Town, established a community of practice on Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs) to foster discussions, exchange of best practices, and recommendations to address HHPs amongst relevant stakeholders. This is a summary of the discussion on Alternatives in Phasing Out HHPs: Industry innovations and the Substitution process, which took place on 15 September 2020.
Presenters: Dr Lilian Tornqvist (Keml), Dr Andy Ward (CropLife International)
This discussion aimed to promote engagement with and an understanding of alternatives to highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs). This was the second discussion on HHPs focusing specifically on industry innovations for transitioning to low toxic alternatives and how to use the substitution process to guide decision making on HHP and when no alternatives are available.
