PANAP Annual Reports

PAN Asia Pacific 2018 Annual Report

PANAP has been at the forefront of building vibrant movements for agroecology across the region by facilitating learning exchanges, organising an international youth assembly, and coordinating a 16-day global action to advance our call for food sovereignty.

Not only have we led the monitoring and documentation of pesticides use in various countries in Asia Pacific, we also looked at the issue of corporate accountability of the agrochemical industry and have been among the keen advocates of a legally binding global treaty on Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs).

Finally, through research on human rights violations and land grabbing; international fact-finding and solidarity missions; and trainings on people’s rights and human rights work, we made our contribution to help advance the struggles of rural communities in the region against land and resource grabs.

2013-2014 PANAP Annual Report

PANAP is pleased to share its annual report for 2013-2014. We have been continuing our capacity building, focusing on rural women’s leadership.

Last year, we launched the ”Irene Fernandez Rural Women’s Leadership Training” in honour of Irene Fernandez who was instrumental in advancing rural women’s rights.

2012 PANAP Annual Report

“My courage and leadership were strengthened.”
“I am inspired by the women’s movement!”
“There needs to be more women involved in the community, organisations and politics.”
“My self-confidence has increased!”
“The workshop has made an impact on me to the extent of thinking of creating a women’s institute.”

These were words from the rural women who participated in the pilot leadership training in July 2012 in Sri Lanka organized by PAN AP. The sharing of personal struggles, experiences, of standing up for women’s rights, being strengthened by the women’s movement was inspiring for all who participated. The learning exchanges built solidarity and renewed commitment to be a strong leader with vision, perspective and courage.
