Belarus

The development of the NIP was supported by the GEF/World Bank. The country reports 6,558 metric tonnes of obsolete pesticides and the inventory process is almost finalised through a combination of site inspections and review of available information.

148.3 metric tonnes of obsolete pesticides have been repackaged in the Vibetsk region by December 2011 in the frame of a training programme implemented by the GEF/FAO EECCA project. Further repackaging has been paid by national funds (Work Bank loan in the waste sector) in the Grodno region, and 1,000 metric tonnes of obsolete pesticides from the Slonim burial site have been sent for final disposal to Germany (2011).
