Cross-pol­li­nat­ing a col­lab­o­ra­tive move­ment strat­e­gy on agro­chem­i­cals and fos­sil pollution

Cen­tre for Inter­na­tion­al Envi­ron­nemen­tal Law

Indus­tri­al, chem­i­cal-inten­sive agri­cul­ture and fos­sil fuels are deeply inter­twined — fos­sil fuels are foun­da­tion­al to the petro­chem­i­cal sec­tor that man­u­fac­tures chem­i­cal-based fer­tilis­ers and pes­ti­cides from fos­sil fuel feedstocks. 

The project will focus on the inter­na­tion­al nego­ti­a­tions for a new glob­al treaty on plas­tics to include petro­chem­i­cals (includ­ing agro­chem­i­cal microplas­tics); Regional/​national active agro­chem­i­cal and petro­chem­i­cal reduc­tion pro­pos­als cur­rent­ly dis­cussed in the Euro­pean Union; and sub­na­tion­al leg­isla­tive or reg­u­la­to­ry ini­tia­tives in the US.
