    El proyecto, iniciado en enero de 2016 y extendido hasta diciembre de 2023, tuvo como objetivo eliminar las existencias de plaguicidas obsoletos incluidos los Contaminantes Orgánicos Persistentes y sus envases, y fortalecer la gestión del ciclo de vida de los plaguicidas en Uruguay. Los resultados de la evaluación indican que el proyecto inicio un proceso prioritario para conjuntar los enfoques productivo, ambiental y de salud con relación al fortalecimiento de la gestión de los plaguicidas. Se ha progresado hacia la reducción del riesgo a la salud humana y al ambiente gracias a los avances en la implementación del Plan de gestión de existencias obsoletas. Además, se encuentra que el proyecto ha logrado fortalecer la gestión de los envases vacíos, identificar estrategias efectivas de manejo integrado de plagas y alternativas a plaguicidas peligrosos, y fortalecer de manera importante las capacidades para el monitoreo de plaguicidas. Las recomendaciones se enfocan en el cumplimiento del plan de trabajo y el seguimiento a la propuesta de eliminación, y a la actualización y fortalecimiento del marco regulatorio.
