CleanFarms Cameroon project completed successfully

With a final presentation to the Minister of Agriculture, the CropLife International-funded CleanFarms project in Cameroon has been completed with around 50 tonnes of obsolete pesticide from many sites repackaged in UN approved drums and bags and transported to a secure centralized store – see photograph of part of the stock. This was achieved without spillage or harm to any personnel involved, due in part to the expert supervision of the operations by the firm Veolia Environmental Services (UK) and the skill and dedication of the field teams from YIF and the Agricultural and Environmental Ministries. FAO also helped with some co-finance and logistics assistance from the country office, and are currently finalizing a Global Environment Fund project that will export the stocks for safe high temperature incineration.
