Abstract

589 different pesticides of over 1,000 formulations are available for use in the South Pacific. Actual amounts used are hard to determine. Some of these pesticides are banned or are highly restricted elsewhere in the world. Despite this, neither effective legislation controlling pesticide importation and use, nor infrastructure for enforcement exist. The South Pacific Regional Environment Program established a Pesticide Project to review the availability and use of pesticides and make recommendations concerning their control and regulation.
