The right of the rural population to live in a quality, clean environment is under threat due to the increasing intensification of agriculture. Planning documents, the development of which came close to the submission of the first proposals to the institutions, ignore the suggestions made by rural residents and environmental NGOs and fully support regulations that respect only the economic interests of big business, nor not only limiting but even increasing the exposure of the rural population to dangerous chemicals.  The aim of the project is to defend the right of people living in rural regions to a quality and safe life environment in the process of adopting two important strategic documents. Within the project, the association will intensify the public and scientific discussion on the norms to be included in the Strategic Plan of the Common Agricultural Policy of Latvia and the proposals developed on the basis of the 11,000 population initiative on pesticide control to prevent rural depopulation and deterioration. With the help of the project, evaluations of existing editions will be urgently developed for submission to the European Commission and Latvian government structures.
