Supporting evidence-based pesticide regulation and risk reduction in Georgia, with a focus on vulnerable groups

The current work is designed to contribute to better protection of public health by supporting the identification and reduction of risks posed by hazardous pesticides in Georgia. It is a response to a request for technical assistance from the Ministry of Agriculture in Georgia and builds on the results of a pilot study which was conducted by PAN-UK, Agroservice and the Rotterdam Convention in Georgia during 2014-151 with the support of FAO and the European Union.

The initial study revealed an alarming situation with regard to risky practices and potential levels of exposure to highly hazardous pesticides. The current study builds on this work to identify the people, products and exposure scenarios that are more frequently associated with pesticide poisoning in Georgia.
