Brazil Anvisa hears green views

Brazil’s toxicology authorities have met environmentalist farmers and farm workers to discuss measures to limit the impacts from the use of pesticides in Brazil. Representatives of environmentalist group Via Campesina presented a four-point agenda to officials at the national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa. It included ensuring compliance with international conventions, notably the Rotterdam Convention on prior informed consent and the Stockholm Convention on persistent organic pollutants. The parties also debated the registration and periodic re-evaluation of pesticides. The agency is in the middle of a re-evaluation programme covering 14 active ingredients. It has called for bans and phase outs for some of those, but has met resistance and some legal setbacks ( Agrow passim).
