CSE's recommendations for the Pesticides Management Bill, 2008.

India regulates its pesticides under the Insecticides Act 1968. This Act, however, hasn’t been able to stop the pesticides from contaminating the environment and having a deleterious impact on health. THe Insecticides Act 1968 will be replaced by the Pesticides Management Bill 2008. A lot of hopes were pinned on the Pesticides Management Bill 2008, but the bill hasn't been able to make human and environmental health a priority. CSE has extensively worked on impacts of pesticides and their environmental and human health impacts and it is in this light that CSE makes a few recommendations.

In which direction would climate change negotiations and action head in the coming years? What more evidence has the science and study of climate change thrown up? And would the debates and discussions on mitigation and adaptation be a little more transparent, coherent and comprehensible this year?
