    Abstract

    The agricultural sector in Ethiopia is facing a major challenge due to low crop productivity and production caused by pests. To overcome this issue, the use of pesticides is essential. However, the misuse of pesticides is a common practice in the country. To tackle this problem, RAISE-FS project organized a workshop that brought together stakeholders from various sectors. The workshop identified key challenges, opportunities, and leverage points in the pesticide life cycle and discussed ways to address them. The stakeholders discussed registration, formulation, import, marketing, transporting, storage, use, waste disposal, human health, and environmental concerns related to pesticides. By implementing the recommendations from this workshop, Ethiopia can enhance its agricultural productivity sustainably.
