Improving Capacities to Eliminate and Prevent Recurrence of Obsolete Pesticides as a Model for Tackling Unused Hazardous Chemicals in the Former Soviet Union
As of now, there are still more than 10,000 tons of obsolete pesticides in the territory of Belarus; these pesticides are hazardous chemical substances that seriously threaten human health and the environment. A systemic approach to the process of their disposal would minimize the negative effect of hazardous wastes.
The Project would also make a contribution to the Green Economy – one of the key components of the country’s development.
Anti-personnel mines are among the most dangerous weapons of destruction. In 2003, Belarus acceded to the Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on their Destruction (also known as the Ottawa Treaty) and ratified it on March 1, 2004.
