In the context of the covid 19 virus pandemic, several communities contacted through the agrochemical emergency website following episodes of illegal spraying.

As a result, we began a process of updating the communities already surveyed and mapping new affected communities. Today the website is in the process of updating.

We also began to work on the incorporation of new sections linked to programs, policies and spaces for production, distribution and marketing based on agro ecological models.

Finally, a comprehensive analysis of the problem will be incorporated from the policies that tend to guarantee food sovereignty and security, exploring new tools for action and advocacy.

The agrochemical problem in the Province continues to worsen. New conflicts have been made visible during the COVID 19 pandemic. In this context, we began a process of searching, surveying and updating the agrochemical emergency website to show the scope of the problem.

Likewise, some of the existing conflicts have advanced in various judicial processes. Meanwhile, other communities are still awaiting the resolution of their legal cases.

In addition, during this year, we have proposed to analyze and study the role of women in agro-ecological production as a system that combats the negative externalities of the agro-industrial production model in Argentina.

The agrochemical emergencies website has been updated, adding a total of 22 cases examined in the province of Córdoba. Many communities have acted based on the tools and information provided by the website. We continue to investigate local cases to achieve greater visibility.

Powerful tools have also been incorporated to obtain information and greater participation in judicial processes.

We are currently investigating the problem in order to expand access to information and useful tools for the protection of the environment and health.

Likewise, we are generating tools to promote practices related to sustainable production models that are respectful of human rights, the environment and public health.

After several months of gathering information and building new legal tools, we relaunched the Agrochemical Emergency website. In the context of the covid virus pandemic, the situation around the application of agrochemicals was aggravated by the lack of state control.

In updating the website, we incorporated new legal tools to guarantee access to justice for those affected by the problem. We also incorporated a comprehensive analysis from a public and environmental health approach to the agrochemicals problem.

Finally, we expanded the analysis of the current regulatory framework. We incorporated the analysis of legal instruments that promote agricultural activity from a sustainable approach, while incorporating new cases into the mapping.

In the context of the pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus, cases of complaints of illegal application of agrochemicals have increased worryingly throughout the country. However, these complaints are often stopped due to lack of personnel.

 

That is why we decided to undertake a work of global updating of the site. We are investigating new cases to add to the site mapping. The scope of the agrochemical problem will also be announced through research work carried out.

 

Finally, new legal resources and instruments are being developed, which will then be uploaded to a section of the page for people to access. These resources allow participation and intervention in the complaint process, requiring the authorities to act more actively.
