Reclaiming the future of food and farming

PAN Newsletter, Fall 2014

On June 5, 2014, Pesticide Action Network Asia and the Pacific, partnering with PAN North America, launched a global campaign to phase out 20 highly hazardous pesticides particularly dangerous to children.

The Terrible Twenty are linked to cancers, brain damage, birth defects and asthma, among others. The campaign will target policy makers in strategic Asian countries and North America with a call for a permanent moratorium on use of the Terrible Twenty and support for introducing agroecological farming.
