Handbook for Community Based Pesticide Action Monitoring, Corporate Accountability and International Advocacy


This handbook provides information and monitoring tools to carry out community monitoring focused on collecting information on the situation at the local level on how pesticides are used and their impacts. And using the documentation from the monitoring for national and international advocacy. It outlines a monitoring and documenting approach, based on Community Pesticide Action Monitoring (CPAM). Elements of corporate accountability has also been added to the tools/questionnaires as corporations are among the biggest violators of human rights. Driven by the need to squeeze as much profits as they can, they often violate the basic rights of communities and individuals. Thus, documenting these is vital for campaigning and advocacy to hold both States and corporations accountable for human rights violations.
