Geneva (2018 – ongoing)
The third session of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA-3), in 2017, adopted a Resolution on Environment and Health. In this Resolution, the Assembly expressed its concerns about the environmental and health impacts of pesticides and fertilizers and requested the Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme to present a report on those impacts – and ways to minimize them – at the fifth session of UN Environment Assembly (UNEA-5) in 2021.
Falconsult was asked by the UN Environment - Chemicals and Health Branch to act as lead consultant for the elaboration of this report, with particular emphasis on the chapters addressing pesticides. We are coordinating with a large number of experts and stakeholders involved in the management and use of pesticides, with the aim to conduct an up-to-date review of the global environmental and health risks of pesticides.
