The workshop will result in a discussion paper about effective interventions and how to upscale local intervention studies on a larger scale to reduce pesticide related human exposure and health risks. The paper will be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal. All workshop participants are invited to co-author the paper. The paper will include an analysis of current challenges, promoters and barriers for intervention research and implementation of interventions on a larger scale. Suitable and most crucial interventions will be promoted to the researcher and stakeholder network. We intend to use the outcome of this workshop to develop an eligible intervention study in the research framework of the Bilateral South African Swiss Chair in Global and Environmental Health. Ideally, the workshop fosters collaboration across researchers and stakeholders across Africa and beyond.

Format: The online workshop will be a mix of presentation, breakout group discussions and plenary discussions. In the breakout group discussions, input for the discussion paper will be prepared.

Target group: Everybody interested in the topic is welcome to participate. The workshop is suitable for researchers, national or local authorities and NGOs.

Registration: No cost registration until 31 October 2021.
