Pesticide Action Network North America works to replace the use of hazardous pesticides with ecologically sound and socially just alternatives. As one of five PAN Regional Centers worldwide, we link local and international consumer, labor, health, human rights, environment and agriculture groups into an international citizens’ action network. This network challenges the global proliferation of pesticides, defends basic rights to health and environmental quality, and works to ensure the transition to a just and viable society. .
Over 30 years, Pesticide Action Network has helped increase bans and severe restrictions on the most hazardous pesticides in more than 90 countries. PAN North America celebrated these recent wins: • Carcinogenic strawberry pesticide blocked — On March 20, together with a coalition of partners in California and across the nation, we won a six-year campaign to block methyl iodide when its maker, Arysta LifeScience, the largest privately held pesticide company in the world, pulled the fumigant off the entire U.S. market. • Documenting and reducing exposure to airborne pesticides in the U.S. (through community-based partnerships in California, Florida, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, Washington and other states and a national campaign that led to substantial new restrictions on hazardous fumigants); • Eliminating persistent pesticides worldwide, including endosulfan in April 2011, primarily through advocating addition of pesticides to the Stockholm Convention's list of chemicals to be phased out internationally; and • Promoting smaller-scale, ecological farming to feed the world. PAN staff were lead authors in the April 2008 UN International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology for Development.
