Abstract: Pesticides are responsible for hundreds of cases of poisoning in the developing world, where information and training on the potential negative health effects of these chemicals is often lacking. While the impact of the indiscriminate use of toxic chemicals is widely acknowledged, the economic costs of this misuse are less well known. This has held back investment in the necessary health and safety programmes that can safeguard people’s well-being.
Description: This policy brief is based on SANDEE working paper no. 20-07, "Pesticide use in the rice bowl of Kerala : health costs and policy options"
