We work closely with representatives of the European Parliament, the Commission, and the Council to engage key decision makers in reducing the use of hazardous pesticides.

Because developments in agriculture, human health and the environment are often complex, the availability of up-to-date scientific information is paramount. To meet this demand PAN Europe commission's regular reports focussing on key aspects of the debate. These are essential in informing a diversity of external stakeholders on for change.

PAN Europe prepares and disseminates regular information briefings on specific policy topics. Our initiatives also include working with farmers, scientists, academics, retailers and trades unions.
