Young farmers from Lobo village sensitized by CECOSDA on pesticides and fertilizers

In the Lobo village, the centre Region of Cameroon, farmers use hazardous pesticides and other fungicides in their farms. CECOSDA carried out a quick survey and organized a training session to encourage behaviour change in the village.

If poorly used, pesticides can be highly toxic, though useful for agricultural productivity. To contribute to the elimination of the use of Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs), the Centre for Communication and Sustainable Development for All (CECOSDA) organized a series of field studies to improve the knowledge of rural populations in the Lobo village about Persistent Organic Pollutant (POPs) in general and Highly Hazardous Pesticides in particular. From the findings of CECOSDA, many farmers don't know how to properly use pesticides and ignore the various Highly Hazardous Pesticides. The fieldwork of CECOSDA was both theoretical and practical, with an educative talk and a practical session on how to properly use pesticides.

The community of Nkolmelen hosted the educative talks; the training session focused on how to identify HHPs, their effects to humans and animal population and the benefits of going for other agricultural chemicals that are less toxic.

After the educative talk, farmers participated in practical activities including how to properly handle pesticides. This activity was followed by the distribution of fliers on pesticides
