2011 Review of Stakeholder Engagement for the Pesticides National Action Plan

The launch of the UK Pesticides Strategy in 2006 included the formation of several stakeholder 'action plan groups' to take forward aspects of the strategy. In 2011, a review of these action plan groups was carried out. It took into account a number of developments since 2006, and particularly the requirements of the EU Directive on the sustainable use of pesticides.

20 December 2011: The outcome of the review

A letter from CRD to Pesticides Forum members and Pesticides Strategy Action Plan Group members explains the results of the review, and the structure for the new model to help deliver and implement the pesticides National Action Plan. The Pesticides Forum will remain the principal stakeholder engagement group for this work. Link to copy of the full letter (pdf, 4 pages)
