Among the most toxic and dangerous chemicals, highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs) are readily found in food residues, and heavily pollutes our bodies and surroundings. Children are especially vulnerable to pesticides due to their developing bodies; so are women from certain types of pesticides. Others are linked to population declines of other species. In 2010, Pesticide Action Network International (PAN) developed a list of HHPs that incorporate these adverse impacts and call for their progressive ban.

The long-term solution is to change agricultural and pest management practices towards sustainable and ecological approaches. PAN AP engages with communities and the general public, governments and international bodies to achieve this change.
