African civil society organisations hereby call on African governments to:
Please sign on to support our continental campaign to ban glyphosate
Globally, glyphosate and glyphosate-based herbicide (GBHs) have penetrated all spheres of our environment and food systems. The persistence and ubiquity of these chemicals place us at the cusp of one of the world’s biggest health crises. This is evident in the plethora of health conditions and chronic diseases that have increased at the same pace as GBH use globally, as legally recognised in three recent court cases in the USA.
We see a marked increase in countries putting in place either full bans or partial bans on the use of glyphosate and GBHs. Yet in Africa only one country, Malawi, has temporarily suspended the importation of GBHs. Unfortunately, however, their Ministry of Agriculture has indicated this may soon be revoked.
