Vivosano – Call for national plan to reduce use of pesticides by 30 percent until 2020
Vivosano and the Fund for protecting Environmental Health (Fonda para la Defensa de la Salud Ambiental) call for national plans to reduce the use and exposure of pesticides in Spain and achieve laws to protect people’s health and the environment.
In a new report the two organisations propose the establishment of legal reduction targets for pesticide use in Spain to protect human health, nature and the future of agriculture. By 2020, Spain should reduce its use of pesticides by at least 30 percent from current levels.
The purpose of this report is to provide a basis for authorities and urge policies to promote the drafting of specific plans to achieve a significant reduction in the amount of pesticides that are consumed in Spain, mainly in the agricultural sector, by specific quantitative and testable targets.
