Illegal Pesticide Trade in the Mekong Countries: Case Studies from Cambodia and Lao PDR


The two studies here – “Illegal pesticides in Cambodia” (2011) and “Illegal pesticide trade in Mekong countries: Case of Lao PDR” ( 2011 to 2013) focus on problems of pesticide regulation, trade in banned and illegal pesticides, use of inappropriate labels on products, health and environmental effects of these pesticides, etc. The studies share several broad similarities, which are also common to many other developing countries in South-East Asia. They were conducted in two areas in Cambodia, bordering Vietnam and Thailand, and three areas in Lao PDR, bordering Thailand, Myanmar, China and Vietnam from 2011 to 2013.
