Transformation in Pesticide Governance

The Transformation

To simultaneously achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda in areas such as Biodiversity Conservation, Food Production and Consumption, a fundamental transformation in land use and agricultural production seems indispensable.

Different interests, needs, and priorities render this task a real challenge. So the general question arises:  How can we achieve successful sustainable transformation in areas of societal, economic, and environmental trade-offs?

To answer this question the TRAPEGO project focuses on pesticide use in agriculture in Switzerland; a cross-cutting theme where interests related to agricultural production are challenged by human and environmental health concerns.
