End of the road for endosulfan: pushing for a global ban on a deadly pesticide
This recent report by Environmental Justice Foundation details the environmental and human impacts of 'endosulfan'. It highlights why it should be banned globally and provides suggestions for actions by national governments & other stakeholders to eradicate this deadly pesticide.
This report considers the overwhelming evidence that the dangers associated with endosulfan use outweigh its benefits. It presents the results of numerous scientific studies showing the severe adverse effects endosulfan has on humans and the environment, and the arguments for viable alternatives. Altogether, there is a compelling case for a global ban on endosulfan under the Stockholm convention and, in the interim, for national governments and other stakeholders to take immediate action to eradicate this deadly pesticide.
