The website launched a couple of months ago is structured based on three objectives. The first is to raise awareness about socio-environmental conflicts caused by the use given to agrochemicals in the province of Córdoba. The second is to provide information and legal resources, tools for the empowerment of communities in their fight for their rights to health and to healthy environment. The third one is to raise visibility of conflicts through a collaborative platform in which new conflicts can be incorporated, thereby expanding the content.
So far, the “Agrochemical Emergency” site has demonstrated its efficiency in terms of access to legal resources to face the agrochemical problem. Members of different local communities of the Province of Córdoba have been reached through the web portal and they contacted us for inquires and assessment. Based on the legal resources available on the site, various communities have initiated legal action against illegal spraying.
On the other hand, existing conflicts have moved forward, at the same time there has been emergence of new conflicts. We are developing a mapping update by carrying out a survey of the available information and the generation of new community files.
