PAN Europe’s work aims to achieve
policy change at European level for:
· more effective controls on pesticides to better protect
human health and the environment;
· concrete targets and timetables for pesticide use reduction;
· promotion of safer and more sustainable management of pests,
diseases and weeds;
· increased transparency and public participation in pesticide
policy and decision-making.
