The voluntary Accord, the APL, is a strategy to prevent damage to the environment and public health through the treatment and disposal of obsolete pesticides. It aims to fulfil the country's obligations under international treaties. They include: the Rotterdam Convention on Prior Informed Consent (PIC); the Stockholm Convention on persistent organic pollutants (POPs); and the Basil Convention, which covers the disposal of and transportation of hazardous waste.
