About the product

This compilation of phase-out strategies will be a helpful resource for those countries developing action plans and implementing measures to promote the phase out of the ozone depleting pesticide methyl bromide. It provides an overview of existing laws and regulations influencing use of methyl bromide in both developing and industrialized countries. In addition, it highlights economic incentives and voluntary programmes supporting phase out; policies acting as barriers or impediments to methyl bromide use reduction; and government- supported programmes that specifically promote alternatives to methyl bromide.
