This strategy for improved agro-chemical use and management for the wider Caribbean outlines the ten key prioritised management recommendations that have been developed with the Coordinating Group of Pesticide Control Boards of the Caribbean (CGPC). The strategy translates these recommendations into actions that may be taken at regional and national levels to harmonise pesticide control measures, to support and finance existing institutions and improve collaboration, and to promote good agricultural practice through information, training and outreach work.
The strategy provides detailed guidance on developing health and environmental monitoring plans and on research and planning that should be undertaken in support of these. It makes recommendations on sustainable financing, capacity building and communication and education programmes that are required in support of the strategy.
