The special report presents the results of the audit and concludes that although action has been taken at both EU and national level to encourage sustainable pesticide use, progress has been limited with respect to risk measurement and reduction. It presents the ECA's recommendations for improvement, including measures for increasing the practice of integrated pest management, improving PPP statistics, and improving related risk indicators.
