Jessie Luna gave the keynote address at a fall conference in Côte d’Ivoire (West Africa) on Pesticides and Public Policies in the Global South. Her talk was in French: “Réguler l’invisible: les compromis et paradoxes au sein des politiques relatives aux pesticides en Afrique.”

She also took part in a panel discussion on pesticides at a large radio station in Bouaké, the second biggest city in Côte d’Ivoire. She underscored the importance of holding pesticide manufacturers accountable rather than blaming farmers for their “unsafe practices.”
