Pesticides uses and risk perceptions


The presentation for the workshop “Pesticides, Agriculture and Food: Multiple and Growing concerns in Cambodia”. Talk about an anthropological research conducted between June 2018 and March 2019. Anthropology and others social sciences are really crucial in order to understand the health hazards of pesticides. Technical tools, conceptual framework and knowledge from environmental and medical sciences are not sufficient to understand the dynamic of circulation of pesticides. The “social life” of pesticides is really different than the one imagined in industry and regulation institutions. The aim of the project was to explore in Cambodia the everyday life with pesticides, among rice farmers in Battambang and Svay Rieng, and among vegetable farmers in Kandal and Svay Rieng province but also among consumers in Phnom Penh and Battambang. Through interviews and observations, Was studied the risk perception and the strategies of control developed by people to protect themselves against the risks.
