Webinar "Hazardous Pesticides and EU's double standards"
Webinar, 29 September 2020
There is a growing concern by European Citizens about the use of hazardous pesticides in food production and their impact on human health and biodiversity, globally. This event aims to present and bring to the debate the issue of European exports of hazardous pesticides that are banned in Europe or their use is severely restricted, which are often detected in food sold in the European market. A debate panel with the Commission (DG ENV and DG SANTE), the European Chemicals Agency and Members of the European Parliament will take place to discuss the role of the EU and potential political solutions.
