Case studies on alternatives to methyl bromide, Volume 2: technologies with low environmental impact in countries with economies in transition

United Nations Environment Programme (2003)

UNEP has compiled this document of six case studies to encourage farmers, extension agencies, researchers, policy-makers and other stakeholders from the CEIT region to examine environmentally sustainable techniques, specifically suited to the unique climatic, cultural and socio-economic conditions found in these countries, when considering the replacement of methyl bromide. Included are chemical and non-chemical alternatives, across the spectrum of methyl bromide uses in CEITs, as well as analyses of associated costs and the applicability of technologies to the region. With financing from the Global Environment Facility, as well as additional support from Environment Canada, this document received key input from members of the Methyl Bromide Technical Options Committee (MBTOC), and regional CEIT methyl bromide experts.
