Experts from an interdisciplinary consortium will present insights into selected areas such as best policy practices, new technological approaches, farmer behavior, and efficient policy designs. The Webinar is co-​hosted by the World Food System Center and the Agricultural Economics and Policy Group of ETH Zurich.  

The webinar is building upon a recently published paper ‘Pathways for advancing pesticide policies,’ in which we suggest key steps to achieve a reduction in pesticide risks. For example, new technologies and regulatory frameworks need to be implemented and aligned with all actors in food value chains. We propose a holistic approach to advancing pesticide policies, which accounts for the major trade-​offs and areas of tension with other agricultural policy goals.
