The objective of these guidelines is to provide guidance in the performance of a situation analysis aimed at identifying the weaknesses, strengths and needs for strengthening a country’s public health pesticide management practices.

They are addressed to ministries of health and national pesticide regulatory authorities, which should have the overall responsibility of initiating the analysis and the implementation of its outcome. Other national stakeholders whose actions or mandate impact on the effective management of public health pesticides should be involved in this process. These may include other government sectors, the private sector and academia as well as civil society organizations.
