Protecting against human health hazards in chemical-intensive agriculture


Environmental health actions in the agriculture sector and national agricultural policy should be compatible with each other. Having assessed the health effects of inputs and wastes, states should direct their efforts towards integrating this information not only into economic mechanisms but also into agricultural practices. Subsidies, incentives and compensation schemes should comply with the "polluter pays" and the "user pays" principles.
