Case Studies on the Sustainable Use of Pesticides

MDI is involved in an international consortium which has been mandated by the European Parliament to evaluate the sustainable use of pesticides. The assignment utilises two case studies from Finland, one is related to the prohibition of the use of pesticides in particularly vulnerable areas and the other to the economic, social and ecological effects of pesticides in relation to drinking water. The consortium’s main body is the Austrian ÖIR, Österreichisches Institut für Raumplanung GmbH. The study was completed at the end of 2018.
