Those who live their lives on the frontlines of pesticide use or production face higher levels of exposure — and risk of harm.
Every day, farmers, farmworkers and rural communities bear disproportionate exposure to agricultural chemicals. Around the world, factories where pesticides are produced and disposal sites where they are buried endanger both workers and nearby communities. And global transport of persistent pesticides continues to put people at risk far from where pesticides are used.
PAN works with affected communities to document and raise awareness of this often invisible problem, and press for safer solutions.
